Healthcare does not cost RM1

THERE’S much to be proud of when it comes to Malaysia. The previous three decades in particular have brought about development in leaps and bounds which have translated to a better and much improved quality of life for us compared to that of our parents and grandparents.

Consider, for example, the life expectancy of the average Malaysian. Back in 1970, just several years after the formation of Malaysia, one expected to live up to 64 years. Today, it is 74.7 years, with a male child born in 2016 expected to live up to 72.6 years and a female child up to 77.2 years.
