Star: SEREMBAN: Effective June 1, all Muslim couples in Negri Sembilan are required to undergo HIV screening at designated government clinics before getting married.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said that this was in line with the outcome of the special Cabinet committee on HIV/AIDS meeting last year which recommended compulsory screening for Muslims intending to tie the knot.
He said a study was conducted by the Negri Sembilan health and religious authorities last year before a decision was made to implement the programme.
