World Radio Day 2020: Drug Users Need Support

Drug users in Malaysia are treated as criminals. As a result, they are unable to seek help for their addiction, receive health services, or be part of society. We revisit a show from 2018, where Hariyati Jonet, a Senior Executive at the Malaysian AIDS Council, spoke about how drug users need to be supported, not stigmatised.

Produced by: Tee Shiao Eek

Presented by: Tee Shiao Eek, Juliet Jacobs, Lim Sue Ann
