Summary
This report documents the good practices in harm reduction programmes in Malaysia and the progress to date in addressing the transmission of HIV among people who use drugs. It highlights and discusses how policies and programmes have addressed this through strong and committed leadership, community participation, sustained partnerships, and multisectoral collaboration and coordination.

The experiences and good practices described in this document will be useful for countries, partners and stakeholders who wish to replicate Malaysia's efforts at providing and scaling up harm reduction services.
