US magazine: Malaysia's healthcare is No. 3 worldwide


PETALING JAYA:  A study by the American publication International Living rates Malaysia's healthcare system as the third best out of 24 countries in its 2014 Global Retirement Index - beating out Spain, Italy, Ireland and New Zealand, among other countries.
