Abstract

"A consensus workshop, held in 1999, estimated the average HIV prevalence in Malaysia to be 41 000 in 1998.
In order to reassess the HIV/AIDS situation, the Ministry of Health of Malaysia, with support from WHO, organized a workshop in Kuala Lumpur in April 2001, with the following specific objectives:
· to review available data on HIV/AIDS, STIs and relevant behavioural factors in Malaysia;
· to identify the STI/HIV/AIDS trend;
· to make estimates and projections based on existing data;
· to reach a consensus on the situation; and
· to recommend improvements to the current AIDS/STI surveillance system, and appropriate future interventions."
