SUNGAI PETANI, 11 April 2017:

Six million people received outpatient treatment at government hospitals and clinics last year – providing a testament that the country’s health services are among the best in the world.

Health Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya said it showed people still trusted the health services provided by the government for RM1 charge fee for the past 35 years.

“Despite the increase in government cost, we still maintain the RM1 charge for not wanting to burden the people who use the service at the outpatient department.”

As a result of the improved health services in the country, Dr Hilmi said the government was also projecting 15% of seniors with life expectancy of 72 years for men and 76 years for women by 2030.
