Research of PT Foundation

PT Foundation welcomes community members who are interested in researching at the organization and learning more about the communities PTF works with.  There is great value in research projects as they can raise awareness about HIV, at risk communities and PT Foundation, cumulatively creating a better understanding about HIV in Malaysia.

PT Foundation receives many research requests from university students each week.  In order to handle so many requests, PT Foundation follows a procedure to ensure that each request is handled correctly and to facilitate conducted research in the best way possible.

To submit a research request to PT Foundation, please follow this procedure:

  1. Fill out and submit the research application form to ptf@ptfmalaysia.org.
  2. When submitting your application please include a letter of support from your university along with any other relevant documents including consent forms, questionnaires, surveys, protocol information etc.
  3. Submit your request at least one month prior to when you want to conduct your research (for example, if you wish to conduct your research in May, submit request by end of April).
  4. Your application, along with all others submitted for that month, will be reviewed by relevant staff members at PT Foundation and you be informed whether of not it has been approved.

Please be aware that the review process can take up to two weeks and that PT Foundation does not always have the capacity to accept all research requests.  Kindly note applications that are detailed, well thought out and have a clear benefit to PT Foundation will be favoured during the review process.
