The use of institutional and residential care is relatively widespread across Malaysia. According to the Ministry of Women, Family and Community development, there are reported to be around 11,000 children in government-run institutional care facilities.

There is no official definition of family-based care in Malaysia. There are several NGOs operating in the country pushing the deinstitutionalisation agenda.
