Health & Living Live 2018 Part 1 of 5: The Cost of Low-Cost Healthcare

The Malaysian healthcare system has a public sector that is heavily subsidised, alongside a user-charged private sector. New drugs and new methods in care have led to higher healthcare costs over the past decade, so what would a sustainable healthcare system for Malaysia look like in the long run? Has our current successful formula set us us for future failure? Join our panel speakers for Health and Living Live 2018 (April 2018) as they discuss the cost of healthcare.
