ADVOCACY & RESEARCH

Advocacy

Advocacy is a crucial element supporting PT Foundation in delivering our objectives and purpose to the general public and stakeholders. PT Foundation is regularly invited to give talks and conduct seminars or workshops in corporations, hospitals, factories, companies, charities, youth organizations, schools, colleges and universities on HIV and the communities it affects. Advocacy at PT Foundation not only involves sensitization, but also lobbying different stakeholders on issues related to HIV and sexual health.

Workshops and Information Sessions are an important component of our advocacy and educational programs. We are regularly invited to give talks and conduct seminars or workshops in corporations, hospitals, companies, charities, youth organizations, schools, colleges and universities. We strive to deliver the most updated information on HIV and AIDS, as well as on gender identity and sexual health, in our efforts to reduce the HIV infection rates and to stop stigma and discrimination.

If you would like to know more or get involved in PT advocacy work please call our team at (03) 4044-4611or by email at ptf@ptfmalaysia.org, or go to Volunteer Opportunities.

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.
