|Description:||In July 2003, the United Nation (UN) in collaboration with the United Nations of Malaysia (UNAM) organised an essay competition for young people with the theme “Young People as a Force for Change in a World with AIDS”. The competition aimed to challenge young Malaysians to think about their role in the response to HIV/AIDS in Malaysia.
LISTEN is a compilation of the best 30 essays covering topics ranging from the economic and social impact of HIV/AIDS to the role of young people in eradicating stigma and discrimination towards HIV/AIDS. Selected by a distinguished panel of judges, the essays present an interesting account of the views of young Malaysians with regards to HIV/AIDS and the issues surrounding the epidemic.
