Who we are

On January 10, 2001 the Registrar of Societies, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur registered Pertubuhan Wanita dan Kesihatan, Kuala Lumpur (WAKE). The impact of AIDS on children and adults are both complex and multifaceted. Many suffer intense psychosocial and economic distress. If the children have lost their parents to AIDS, most must live with the stigma and discrimination attached to the disease. WAKE uses a holistic approach to the management of the children’s health and for the other residents of the Homes.

Our outreach/programmes

  • WAKE staff conduct regular visits to areas where women work as sex workers.
  • During these visits, the sex workers receive counselling with regards to their health including issues on HIV/AIDS as well as to guide them towards rehabilitation.
  • The outreach programme is to inform and educate women and transsexuals about HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections and other diseases and to educate female drug users on harm reduction.
