The Ministry of Health receives RM29 billion allocation for 2019 Budget, looking for better healthcare among low-income Malaysians
Healthcare is a thing each and every one of us literally can’t live without. From taking care of ourselves through proper diet and exercise, to getting medication for an infection – we will always need a certain form of healthcare to live. Therefore for us to have obstructions to receive healthcare, barriers blocking us from ridding ourselves from diseases, can be heartbreaking.
We all know that treatment for chronic diseases are tremendously expensive, and many of us suffer from finding the means to get treated. The hopes of making things a little less difficult for Malaysians has been initiated recently through 2019 Budget’s record-breaking budget allocation and initiatives for the healthcare sector.
The National B40 Health Protection Fund is proposed to help people from low-income group (in and out of the city) to receive treatment easier and much less expensive. The initiative is certainly an impactful one for many Malaysians succumbing to certain diseases. Will it be as effective as it aims to be? We certainly hope so.The Health
