THE ARTISTS

MALAYSIAN AIDS FOUNDATION

The Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) was formed in 1993 to raise and administer funds to support the activities and programmes of the Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC) and its Partner Organisations. It was formally incorporated under the Trustees (Incorporation) Act 1952 on May 13, 2003, under the esteemed patronage of YABhg Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir. These programmes include financial assistance schemes for children and adolescents infected and/or affected by HIV and the medicine assistance scheme to support Malaysians living with HIV in accessing life-saving treatment; as well as community-based HIV & AIDS education, prevention, treatment, care and support programmes nationwide.

Through its activities and programmes, MAF was able to reach out to as many people living with HIV as possible with health services, care and compassion, to improve their quality of life and enable them to contribute positively back to society. MAF also distributes corporate donors’ funds to support projects that have been unable to secure government funding or projects located in parts of the country where resources are scarce.
