Ensure the standard of doctors in Malaysia
"I hope to have some 50, 000 volunteers as the ministry's fighters in the war against non- communicable diseases like diabetes, heart diseases and cancer, " says the Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam. "The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2011 found that more than 15% of Malaysian adults had diabetes, " he added.
We must prevent diabetes, heart diseases and cancer. Meanwhile, we must also ensure the standard of doctors in the country. For example, the Government appoints 4, 000 to 6, 000 new doctors a year.
