More than 20 years after the first HIV case was reported in Malaysia, there were an estimated 92 000 people living with HIV in the country by the end of 2015. Early cases were concentrated among male. Over time, the epidemic progressively shifted towards increasing infection rates in female with male/female ratio from 9.6 in 2000 to 4.5 in 2010 to 4.0 in 2015.
