Widening Social Protection For The People

All this week to mark our 66th Merdeka, we’re imagining what a better Malaysia could look like from different aspects of our lives. Today we’re focusing on social protection, which is becoming increasingly urgent for the severely poor, vulnerable, and marginalised. We speak with Prof. Emeritus Datuk Dr Norma Mansor, Director, Social Wellbeing Research Centre of Universiti Malaya on what is needed for a more compassionate and equitable Malaysia.
