Overview

The health care system in Malaysia has undergone a fundamental transformation over the last two decades. This book examines this transformation and explores the pressing issues it faces today. It includes coverage of:

  • the evolution of the system since independence, from the colonial legacy of national provision bequeathed from the British to the impact of the global ideological shift against statism in the 1980s
  • considers the responses of the Malaysian state and government policy
  • issues such as equity of provision, women's access to health care, HIV-AIDS health care, care for the elderly.

The book offers a detailed examination of the changing face of health care in Malaysia, and its impact on Malaysian citizens, users and society.
