HIV & AIDS IN MALAYSIA

Under the National Strategic Plan on HIV/AIDS (NSP) 2006-2010, Malaysia has made much progress in HIV prevention, particularly utilising the harm reduction approach which has begun to yield results in reducing the spread of the HIV epidemic. People Living with HIV and in need of treatment are able to access first-line treatment at no cost whilst the second-line regimes are heavily subsidised as well.

In 2017, up to 89% of People Living with HIV (PLHIV) in Malaysia are those who are in the prime of their lives and make up the majority of the working population. It is therefore crucial for corporate in Malaysia to provide support for employees who are either infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. Businesses, large and small, must recognize their responsibility to their employees as well as their communities and do their part in the fight against HIV/AIDS

Government Commitment in Prevention & Management of HIV/AIDS at Workplace Regulation

- Bill Clinton
