Commitment to Action

MAWAR

Commitment by

Malaysian Aids Council

In 2008, the Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC) committed to help reduce HIV vulnerability among sex workers and transsexuals through community empowerment. To fulfill this commitment, the Malaysian AIDS Council will partner with 12 organizations across Malaysia to scale up and expand these HIV prevention services to sex workers through enhanced training and empowerment of sex workers. As sex work is illegal in Malaysia, MAC will also engage with relevant stakeholders to advocate for policies that would enable the implementation of these programs.
