KUALA LUMPUR: Giles Resource Minister, M Kulasegaran, has now set rules to prevent discrimination against people living with HIV / AIDS.

Despite improvements in the death and treatment and quality of life associated with HIV, the virus-affected worker has discriminated against when working or seeking employment.

"It is very important to begin to ease plans to alleviate these problems," said reporter Asean Business Coalition against AIDS against HIV.

Today, he said, employers do not expect reopening of HIV for future workers.

"The employer is just a problem in the process of knowing the situation of HIV in an employee".

His ministry discussed the establishment of regulations or laws prohibiting discrimination against workers with viruses.

They are ready already in other countries, such as the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.

Today, Petronas, together with six other companies, has been awarded the Asean Red Ribbon for excellent work to prevent and control discrimination against HIV / AIDS workers.

The purpose of the award is to promote the participation of Asean employers in the member states, preventing and preventing HIV / AIDS and the discrimination suffered by individuals affected.
