- HIV TEST
The Kuala Lumpur AIDS Support Services Society (KLASS) is a non-profit organisation founded in 2001 by medical professionals and communities affected by HIV. We are a registered society affiliated with the Malaysian AIDS Council.
KLASS is increasing efforts to start people on treatment. It is vital that our clients receive ample support and information before treatment. By doing so, we can address any possible misinformation or concerns borne by our clients.
Peer-support provided by a trained person living with HIV is an evidence-based approach initiated by KLASS in Malaysia. That is effective in helping people newly diagnosed with HIV prepare for treatment.
KLASS is the first movement to introduce peer support in Malaysia. Some people think that peer support is synonymous with HIV counselling, but it is not. Peer support is an evidence-based approach to helping people newly diagnosed with HIV prepare for treatment. Peer support executed well can offer others vital information and skills on how to live well with HIV.
Yet, we have also come to appreciate that HIV can be a very complex concern for some people. The level of needs differs from one client to another.
