Every year PT Foundation marks International AIDS Memorial Day (IAMD) with a series of events which serves both the community and the general public as a reminder of those people living with HIV who have passed away. We show support and encouragement for those living with HIV, their families and the communities most at risk of HIV, all of whom are served by PT Foundation. HIV/AIDS affects us all with more than 100,000 persons infected with HIV in Malaysia since 1986.
Although the series of events may change every year, PT Foundation’s main event, the IAMD Multi-Faith Memorial Service remains a constant. The gathering generally involves more than 400 community members from the Muslim, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu faith and is an opportunity for the community to remember over 13,000 persons who have died from AIDS in Malaysia.
