NCD Chronicles #6: Living With Cancer, And Living On A Knife Edge (Part 2)

This is the second part of an NCD Chronicles cancer special in conjunction with World Cancer Day on 4 February. In the previous episode, Hiba Abdul Rahman, a 32-year-old breast cancer survivor, shared how the inequities in the wider landscape of insurance and medical financing have put her in precarious financial position vis-a-vis her cancer and overall care. In this episode, Hiba shares more about the unique challenges faced by younger adults diagnosed with cancer, while Mandy Thoo from NCD Malaysia, and Mark O’Dell from the Life Insurance Association of Malaysia, weigh in with thoughts on policy changes and the role of other stakeholders.
