Healthcare Forum 2018

Sustaining Tomorrow’s Healthcare, Empowering Today’s Consumers

We are facing double-digit healthcare inflation due to our growing ageing population, more costly advancements in medical technology, poorer lifestyle choices that lead to increasing chronic diseases, as well as better educated and consequently more demanding consumers.

The government has increased its allocation for healthcare to RM26.58billion, which amounts to approximately 9.5% of total budget in 2018 or 4.75% of the nation’s GDP. This move has been lauded by the Ministry of Health as a boon towards health transformation initiatives. However, continually increasing healthcare spending is not sustainable in the long run as a large proportion of our population depend on the public healthcare system. 

How then can Malaysia sustain and further improve on universal health coverage to ensure all Malaysians are able to receive quality healthcare without undue financial hardships? What about balancing between domestic healthcare needs and expanding medical tourism, which is a major revenue earner for our country? In addition, we need to factor in the ever-increasing cost of technological advancements and innovation as well as consider how best to empower consumers to be more involved and take greater charge of their own health.

ASLI’s Healthcare Forum 2018 will serve as a major discussion platform to address these questions and considerations. Key output or takeaways from the forum will be compiled for policy makers’ and other stakeholders’ consideration in determining the future direction of healthcare policy and delivery.
