Sabah AIDS Awareness Group Association (SAGA)

Sabah AIDS Awareness Group Association (SAGA) is a non-governmental organisation formed in 2008. Its founder is Dr. Zaiton Yahaya, a family medicine consultant currently working in Klinik Kesihatan Sandakan.

SAGA is committed to providing health services crucial for the care of HIV/AIDS key populations in Sabah. It aims to free society from the detrimental effects of HIV/AIDS by promoting awareness, prevention, and treatment of HIV regardless of ethnicity, faith, gender, and socioeconomic status.

Objectives of the Sabah AIDS Awareness Group Association:

  • Establish an HIV/AIDS Resource Centre
  • Provide information and counselling to groups infected/affected by HIV
  • Increase public awareness on HIV issues

SAGA Health Access Programme (SHAPE)

The SAGA Health Access Programme (SHAPE)

was introduced by SAGA to provide financial assistance to underprivileged patients from Sabah’s rural areas who have to travel great distances from their homes to seek medical support for HIV or any other critical ailments at government-run healthcare facilities in Sandakan. The programme awards cash incentive worth RM300 to qualified beneficiaries for every hospital appointment that they attend in Sandakan.

The incentive will help to cover the high cost of travelling and other logistic expenses related to the hospital trip. In addition to cash compensation, SAGA also facilitates peer empowerment workshops, hospital peer support programme and counselling programme for HIV patients.

Who will benefit from this programme?

Patients from the rural corners of North East region of Sabah where the principal point of care and treatment is the Klinik Kesihatan Sandakan and the Duchess of Kent Hospital, Sandakan. The project beneficiaries must be Malaysian citizens from low household income (earning less than RM2,000 / month).
