Sandakan AIDS Support Group Association is an NGO body which is actively involved in promoting HIV/AIDS awareness to the community of Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu Sabah.
Sandakan is located in the east coast and covers an area of 2266km square. Sandakan was once known as ‘The Little Hong Kong’ and it is the second largest city in the state. Many of the people in Sandakan carry out normal daily life and lack of knowledge about HIV / AIDS. Women and especially young people are those of high-risk. Financial problems and low economic background matters worse. Immediate action needs to be done to increase knowledge about HIV / AIDS among high-risk patients. Education on the dangers of HIV and “practice safe sex ‘ help reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. With the hope of our establishment, awareness about HIV / AIDS can be improved.
Proposed establishment of the association of SAGA is to encourage public involvement in the action of HIV / AIDS. This is to meet the challenges of National Strategic Plans for HIV / AIDS strategy 2006-2010 to five of ‘Reducing HIV vulnerability among marginalized and vulnerable groups.
SAGA is currently based in the clinic Sandakan District Department of Foreign patients. If you have any questions, please contact us or come directly to it.
