Since 1986 when the first HIV case made its debut, HIV has become one of Malaysia's most serious health and development challenges. At the beginning of the epidemic, injecting drug users was key driven factor that charted the graph by leaps and bounds as the country’s responses focused more on creating awareness and early detection.
To streamline National response, AIDS/STD Sector was established within the Public Health Division in Ministry of Health Malaysia in 1993. In 1992, Malaysia AIDS Council (MAC) was established under the auspices of the Ministry of Health to compliment the national responses with special focus on most-at-risk populations. Without doubt, the current prevention landscape provides a number of opportunities that were not available in 1986.
