Public Health #4: How Will Malaysia Cope With its Ageing Population?

Azrul Mohd Khalib, CEO of Galen Centre for Health and Social Policy, and Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin, consultant geriatrician from Universiti Malaya, discuss what policies have to be in place to ensure that the elderly are supported by adequate services and facilities.
