Understanding Private Healthcare: Our Explanation to YB Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi, Minister of Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs


23 December 2020: Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia APHM had our third meeting this year with YB Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi, Minister of Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs. We from the private healthcare expressed our concerns on healthcare cost and explained the working structure of our business.

Our industry is a great contributor to the country’s revenue in terms of medical tourist and at the same time we reduce the expenditure burden on healthcare to the government. Without any subsidy from the government, we have successfully remained sustainable and comparatively with other industries, private healthcare profits are way low.

We wish to continuously  play a role  together with YB Minister of this ministry and his officers on different aspects of costing and focus on patient care with a greater value.
