About The Organisation

Persatuan SLE Malaysia (PSLEM) is a non-profit support group formed in 1994 by concerned doctors and patients to help people suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), a life-long, life-threatening disease that occurs when the patient’s immune system turns against the body's own healthy tissues for reasons that are still unknown.

Any organ can be affected: the skin, joints, kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, etc. The disease is difficult to diagnose and can cause tissue damage, organ failure, and even death, if not properly treated. 90% of SLE sufferers are women, mainly in their childbearing years.


Increasing public awareness of SLE, its symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment so as to contribute towards an early diagnosis and proper management of the disease.
Educating patients and their family members on the various aspects of SLE to help them better understand the chronic auto-immune disorder.
Providing free counselling services to enable patients and their family members cope with the challenges of living with SLE.
Initiating and nurturing the formation of SLE support groups in Malaysia, thereby strengthening the social support systems for SLE patients and their family members.
