About Us

PT Foundation (previously known as Pink Triangle Sdn Bhd) is a community-based, voluntary non-profit making organization providing HIV/AIDS education, prevention, care and support programmes, sexual health and empowerment programmes for vulnerable communities in Malaysia. We work with 5 key affected populations mainly drug users, sex workers, transsexuals, men who have sex with men (MSM), and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV).


PT Foundation was founded in 1987 to provide a telephone counseling service for HIV/AIDS and sexuality issues. Over the years, we have expanded our services responding to the needs and concerns of various communities that are discriminated against due to their way of life or HIV/AIDS status.

Our mission is to be the leading community-based organization in Malaysia working with key affected populations on HIV and AIDS, gender identity and sexual health, providing information, advocacy, HIV prevention, care and support services.


We are committed to creating an enabling environment for marginalized communities in the following ways:

  2. Empower people living with HIV in Malaysia and other key affected populations in dealing with HIV and AIDS, gender identity and sexual health.
  3. Build PT Foundation’s role as the leader of independent reliable and impartial information on HIV and AIDS, gender identity and sexual health in Malaysia.
