CEO's Message


Welcome to the Human Life Advancement Foundation (HLAF) website. I hope as you explore through our website you may discover and understand more about our foundation, its mission, objectives, structure and other things that we as a team hold dear to our hearts.

HLAF was successfully launched by our beloved Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, former Prime Minister of Malaysia and also the Chairman of HLAF on 27 March 2013.

The Human Life Advancement Foundation is an international non-profit organisation, whose prime objective is to bridge the gap between the advanced and the developing nations in areas of innovation and technological advancements.

HLAF also award scholarships to PhD and Post-PhD scholars who are involved in research works that will have significant milestone and impact on the world communities. We also plan to annually present a Lifetime Achievement award to an individual whose contribution and commitment in the innovation has made an incremental impact globally.

As innovation and technological advancement is an important catalytic factor in the global economic progress, the foundation in the near future intends to embark vigorously on the protection and commercialization of intellectual property (IP) and assets to foster innovation and create opportunities for wealth and economic sustenance. HLAF where necessary will carry out analysis and due diligence and processes for registration and maintenance of the IP.

One of the foundation’s key agenda is to devise innovative ways to create partnerships and linkages with businesses, centres of excellence and world communities to enable knowledge and technology transfer for common good.

Hence, I take this opportunity to seek all relevant quarters to assist and support this foundation in our pursuit of bridging the gap between nations via transfers of technologies and innovation; it is indeed for a noble cause.

It is hoped that our presence it not a mere existence of just another foundation as HLAF look towards new opportunities and continued growth in the fields of innovation and technology globally. We strive to explore and encourage new innovation, technologies and knowledge which shall be of benefit to all mankind. On behalf of HLAF, thank you for taking time to learn more about us.
