PAL Scheme is a charity initiative by Malaysian AIDS Foundation that provides sponsored second line antiretroviral treatment to underprivileged People Living With HIV and AIDS (PLHIV).
Riding on the slogan, Positive Audacious Living, PAL Scheme was conceived by Malaysian AIDS Foundation with the primary objective of helping PLHIV to prolong and improve their quality of life.
PAL Scheme requires a minimum commitment of approximately RM 500,00 per annum by MAF to sustain, which roughly translates into medication subsidy for about 60 PLHIV.
This is a huge financial burden for MAF, and has prevented us from opening up medication subsidy opportunity for more recipients. As a result, there is a long waiting list for PAL Scheme. Some of the waiting list candidate has waited for several years to join PAL Scheme.
MAF seeks support from donor and corporate funder to expand PAL Scheme coverage so that more PLHIV will have a second shot at lives and receive their much-needed medication.
