Non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, mental health disorders and obesity, have emerged as leading causes of death among Malaysia’s population of 32.6 million.
As part of a plan to improve its healthcare system, the Ministry of Health in 2020 launched its Strategic Framework of the Medical Programme 2021 - 2025 as a guide to achieving universal health coverage, with a particular focus on tackling mental health and cancer treatment.
Since the start of the pandemic, Roche Diagnostics tested more than 500,000 patients with our tests, including supplying rapid antigen tests for regular screening of workers in high-risk areas such as factories.
We also set up more than 10 testing labs in the public and private sector, and supplemented labs with more than a million COVID tests as demand soared.
