We kindly request you to submit your Proposal to Strengthen access to justice and empowerment of key populations who use drugs or live with HIV.
Legal aid plays an important role in guaranteeing protection from discrimination, getting redress for rights violations, and supporting access to HIV prevention and treatment services. However, the enforcement of even the most basic human rights for people living with HIV in Malaysia is difficult because of high levels of stigma and discrimination. The Malaysian AIDS Council have documented multiple reports on workplace discrimination among people living with HIV that resulted in job termination, offer retraction and anxiety-related issues.
In Malaysia, although HIV service organizations have established strong rapport with key populations at-risk of getting HIV or living with HIV, legal assistance remains an unaddressed need, with lack of information about how to obtain legal aid, absence of linkages between HIV service organizations and legal service providers, as well as low levels of legal empowerment amongst PWUD arrested for drug offences.
There is a need for PWUD and key populations to have accessible information about their rights and legal assistance that are available to them.
Please be guided by the form attached hereto as Annex 2 in preparing your Proposal.
