KUALA LUMPUR: The MySejahtera application could be expanded to include the e-commerce, education, delivery services sectors, besides functioning as a one-stop platform or Super App, said Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah.

He said that if its use was expanded, the application currently used by nearly 25 million Malaysians would be able to provide various services under one platform.

“With this, we at KKMM (Communications and Multimedia Ministry) will continue our efforts to develop not only the telecommunications infrastructure but also ramp up the use of digital technology to realise MyDigital’s aspirations for the benefit of all, towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0,” he said in a statement in conjunction with World Health Day today.

He said the MySejahtera app had helped the government, especially the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) in managing up-to-date information on infections, and monitoring the spread of the pandemic as well as vaccine registrations in real time.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has encouraged the adoption of digital methods in healthcare services, and the most important and effective initiative has been the creation of the MySejahtera app,” he said.

Meanwhile, Dr Saifuddin said that World Health Day, which is celebrated on April 7 every year since 1948, is aimed at raising public awareness on global health issues.

He said the theme for this year’s celebration, which is ‘Building a fairer, healthier world’, was aimed at ensuring health services can be enjoyed by everyone. – Bernama
