Event description
This public seminar will discuss the progress, gaps and opportunities in addressing healthcare in Sarawak and Sabah. What can we do better?

About this Event

Despite recent international recognition of Malaysia’s healthcare system, the issue of providing healthcare services that are of high quality, yet accessible and affordable to the population, has been considered a significant challenge even for an upper middle-income country like Malaysia.

The gaps in coverage and access for Sarawak and Sabah are particularly significant due to geographical and resource limitations.

People in these two states are being left behind.

How can we do better, what areas can be improved on and what out-of-the-box thinking is necessary to improve healthcare for East Malaysia?

At this seminar, we will discuss the state of urban and rural healthcare, maternal health, cancer and how we can ensure that the next 5 Year Malaysia Plan responds better to the needs of the Sarawak and Sabah people.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Aini Fahriza Ibrahim, Mercy Malaysia (Sarawak)
  • Dr. Kelvin Yii, Member of Parliament (Bandar Kuching)
  • Agnes Padan , The Story of Kam Agong
  • Dr. Liew Shan Fap , Federation of Private Medical Practitioners' Associations (Sarawak)
  • Sew Boon Lui, Society for Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Kuching (SCAN)
  • Dr. Ong Eng Joe, Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society (SCCS)
  • Datin Dayang Mariani Abang Zain, Society for Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Kuching (SCAN)

Admission is free. Just grab a ticket here or send an email to vinodh@galencentre.org.
