Using a multi-faceted approach, UNICEF challenges HIV and AIDS stigma and discrimination in Malaysia through advocacy, information, education and communication (IEC) materials and resource mobilisation.

UNICEF works with its National Goodwill Ambassadors, the 3R TV hosts, the media, local celebrities, NGOs and the private sector to encourage public action in support for HIV and AIDS programs that will benefit children and young people in Malaysia.

Through special events, seminars, workshops, TV and radio public service announcements, UNICEF promotes the "Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS" campaign to create awareness about HIV and AIDS related issues and reduce the stigma and discrimination against People Living with HIV. 

In addition, UNICEF mobilises young people in its HIV and AIDS-related special events to ensure they have opportunities to be part of the response in Malaysia. This includes youth forums, sports programs, club events as well as a 2006-2007 campaign website www.whatareyoudoing.net to encourage young people to stay away from drugs.
