KUALA LUMPUR (July 27): As an effort to raise the public’s access to quality and education, the government seeks to raise Malaysia’s position to 25th on the United Nations (UN) Development Index.
As recommended in the Health White Paper, the government is committed to a target of 5% of gross domestic product for health services expenditure to optimise public and private health systems.
The Health White Paper includes a 15-year strategy aiming to create a more sustainable, capable, durable healthcare system moving towards improving the level of people’s well-being and access to healthcare. One of the approaches includes a holistic approach to healthcare at the primary level.
The provision of quality health access is expressed by the construction of the National Disease Control Centre with a project cost value of RM305 million in Negeri Sembilan which not only carries the role of a disease referral centre but also as a preparation facility in the instance of a possible pandemic.
Moreover, a new paradigm shift includes a shift in the public health approach from ‘treating patients’ to ‘disease prevention’ which relies on the public to maintain, protect and improve personal health.
