A STUDY by the American publication, “International Living”, has rated Malaysia’s healthcare system as the third best (after France and Uruguay) out of 24 countries in the 2014 Global Retirement Index, “beating Spain, Italy, Ireland, New Zealand and other countries.” (The Star, 11 Feb).
The President of Malaysian Medical Association, Datuk Dr NKS Tharmaseelan, deservingly acknowledges that our Health Ministry has become a massive seamless service provider in healthcare that has produced magnificent results over the years.
For example, Malaysia’s life expectancy is 80 years for women and for men it is 72 years. This itself is a good reflection of the excellent healthcare of the country.
Congratulations to the Health Ministry headed by Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.
Let us all work together to achieve the first place in the next retirement index.
