City University of Hong Kong, together with 25 other organizations and companies, was presented the Web Care Award by the Internet Professionals Association (iProA) in recognition of their meeting the primary "no barrier websites" requirements.

The web care award was accorded to the CityU Homepage and the University's centrally maintained web pages. It reflects the University's commitment to web accessibility and support to the Web Care Campaign. The University has also produced a set of tips for staff to help internal departments make their websites accessible.

"We hope to raise awareness of the digital divide issue so that everyone could have an equal opportunity to enjoy the benefits of advanced information technology," said Mr Willam Tang, Chairman of the Web Care Committee, at the award presentation ceremony on 26 October.

Set up in 1999 as a non-profit ogranization, the iProA's mission is to advance the art and science of Internet technology and its application in Hong Kong.
