Reducing vulnerability of women and girls
The joint report ‘Women and Girls Confronting HIV and AIDS’ released by Ministry of Health and UNICEF in 2008 highlighted the feminisation of HIV in Malaysia, and the vulnerability of women and girls to the epidemic.

Following the release of the report, a taskforce for women, girls and HIV was set up with plans to directly address HIV prevention, treatment and care specifically for women and girls.

This taskforce will advocate for policy decisions to ensure that appropriate prevention, intervention and treatment programs are developed to meet the needs of women and girls.

Surveillance and monitoring systems of HIV
UNICEF is working with the United Nations Theme Group on HIV and AIDS to build surveillance and monitoring programs under the National AIDS Response led by the Ministry of Health (MOH), in collaboration with NGOs.
