Optimising Outcomes and Creating Value in a Changing Healthcare Landscape
KSI organised the 2019 Malaysian Healthcare Conference with the theme Optimising Outcomes and Creating Value in a Changing Healthcare Landscape. The conference brought together healthcare practitioners, healthcare associations, pharmaceuticals, representatives from agencies of the Ministry of Health, and stakeholders of Malaysian healthcare sector. The Minister of Health, YB Datuk Seri Dr. Dzulkefly Bin Ahmad, was in attendance to deliver the Keynote Address, providing delegates an overview of Malaysian healthcare environment and highlighted several initiatives by the government.
Experts discussed various issues faced in the healthcare industry, such as the rising cost, discussed various ways of funding the healthcare sector, means of making healthcare more accessible, called for greater public-private collaborations, using technology to improve workflow efficiency to enable cost reductions, and ways of creating a vibrant pharmaceutical industry.
A consistent message from panel speakers and key delegates was a call to the government to be firm with their policies and exercise greater political will when it comes to difficult but necessary changes.
Accelerating SDGs in Policy & Services At the Local Levels: Civil Society Perspectives
The Malaysian CSO-SDG Alliance presents views on eleven key concerns pertaining to SDGs as indicated in the contents page. These are divided into three main headings namely Overarching Themes, Target Groups (Leaving no one behind) and finally on the Means of Implementation.
In this document sixteen people have made contributions based on their area of the interest and expertise. The write up reveals the depth of understanding, including the level of frustration, in the inability to find solutions. These are really aspects of advocacy, calling on the government to take a stronger position in SDGs. CSOs have in this document attempted to write down their concerns and hope policy makers will be able to appreciate these findings as input and review of some of the most pressing issues and concerns in the localisation of SDGs especially in ensuring an impact of the ground.
