About Us

PT Foundation (previously known as Pink Triangle Sdn Bhd) is a community-based, voluntary non-profit making organization providing HIV/AIDS education, prevention, care and support programmes, sexuality awareness and empowerment programmes for vulnerable communities in Malaysia. We work with 5 vulnerable communities mainly drug users, sex workers, transsexuals, men who have sex with men (MSM), and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV).

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the most efficient community-based organization providing information, education, and care services relating to HIV/AIDS and sexuality in Malaysia, working with communities that are difficult to reach due to societal discrimination.

PT Foundation's 5 Communities Programmes

With much assistance from the Malaysian Aids Council (MAC), we oversee 5 communities within the foundation. An elected Core Group and a Chairperson represent each of these communities, allowing us to lead, strengthen and support an effective response to HIV/AIDS.


PT Foundation was formally registered as Pink Triangle Sdn. Bhd. on the 12th of December 1987 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia under the Register of Companies. In 2000, PT Foundation (526540W) was registered under the Register of Companies and took over the assets of Pink Triangle Sdn Bhd and was formally recognized as a Foundation in Malaysia.

PT Foundation is the largest and most established community-based non-profit HIV/AIDS organization in Malaysia. In the past 25 years we have reached out to more than 100,000 Malaysians, working with the communities that are most vulnerable and impacted by HIV and AIDS.

PT Foundation Financial Reports


PT Foundation was founded in 1987 to provide a telephone counseling service for HIV/AIDS and sexuality issues. Over the years, we have expanded our services responding to the needs and concerns of various communities that are discriminated against due to their way of life or HIV/AIDS status.


We are committed to creating an enabling environment for marginalized communities in the following ways:

  1. To help minimize the rate of infection of HIV/AIDS amongst our communities
  2. To help provide care and support and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS
  3. To help reduce discrimination of our communities that is based on ignorance and lack of information
  4. To empower our communities by providing them a safe space to be themselves

Our Way of Working

  • We consult, guide and empower
  • We are non-judgemental
  • We are volunteer-based
  • We provide support, hope and care
  • We educate our communities for sustained change

At PT Foundation, we believe real change - that makes a positive and lasting impact in people's lives - takes place through community development methods as recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Development Program (UNDP). These methods include peer outreach, safe spaces, community-appropriate information and ensuring that programs are largely 'owned' and managed by the respective communities.

PT Foundation is a partner organization of Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC), an umbrella body representing non-governmental organizations doing HIV/AIDS work in Malaysia.

Advocacy and Research


Advocacy is a crucial element supporting PT in delivering our objectives and purpose to the general public. PT Foundation is regularly invited to give talks and conduct seminars or workshops in corporations, hospitals, factories, companies, charities, youth organizations, schools, colleges and universities on HIV and the communities it affects. Advocacy at PT not only involves sensitization but also lobbying different stakeholders on human rights, sexuality and HIV issues.

Workshops and Information Sessions are an important component of our advocacy and educational programs. We are regularly invited to give talks and conduct seminars or workshops in corporations, hospitals, companies, charities, youth organizations, schools, colleges and universities. We strive to deliver the proper education and information on HIV/AIDS, as well as gender and sexuality, in our effort to reduce the infection rates and to stop stigma and discrimination.
