[Participant Recruitment] Study of the Effectiveness of the Health Programmes on the Well-being of Children with Eczema and Caregivers

Eczema is the most common pediatric skin disease affecting 15-20% of children worldwide and 30% of children in Hong Kong. More than 160,000 children (0 to 14 years old) in Hong Kong are currently suffering from this disease. Children with eczema experience sleep problems, fatigue, social problems, lowered self-esteem and emotional distress, among other difficulties. Parents are no less affected by their child’s condition, facing difficulties such as emotional distress, diminished social activities and declining quality of life.

Department of Social Work and Social Administration of The University of Hong Kong launched the first phase of the programme for children with eczema and their parents during the summer of 2017. The course improves the overall quality of life in children and parents, leading them to develop closer parent-child relationships.

Collaborate with The Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, we are launching the Health Workshop in 2022.
