Malaysia AIDS Foundation

HIV/AIDS continues to pose a global healthcare challenge, particularly in the developing world. Since 1981, there have been over 25 million deaths caused by AIDS and, currently, an estimated 33 million people live with HIV/AIDS worldwide.

In Malaysia, PETRONAS has contributed regularly to the Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) since 1993. Besides awareness-building and fund-raising projects, we have sponsored MAF’s ‘Malam Amal AIDS’, the Red Ribbon Gala, as well as its ‘In the Name of Love’ and ‘Riding for Life’ campaigns.

Additionally, one of our petrochemical subsidiaries, PETLIN (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is a corporate donor to MAF’s Paediatric AIDS Fund, which focuses on the educational and medical needs of underprivileged children living with HIV/AIDS.​
