It is a lucrative business that has made a few groups of people richer while billions of others suffer. Heroine is the popular drug among drug users in Malaysia, where it is normally injected through the veins at some parts of the body. There is danger of transmitting HIV virus when the addicts share their needles. SAHABAT in Kota Bharu, Kelantan is a NGO that conducts Needle and Syringe Exchange Programme (NSEP), to stop the spreading of the virus.
