MOH: Public Must Be Wise When Using govt’ Medicine

KUALA LUMPUR (July 11, 2011)

The Health Ministry said the public must exercise good sense and judgement when using medicine given by the government because they are of high quality and effective in treating their ailments.

Health Director-General Datuk Dr Hasan Abdul Rahman said the prices of medicine purchased by the government for the public were fully subsidised so that the people would not be unduly burdened.

He said the Ministry always viewed the matter seriously and was in the process of improving on transparency for the public by sharing information on the actual prices of medicines given to them to enable them to appreciate the services provided by the government.
