Public Health #19: Mental Health Insurance – Whose Initiative Is It?

Recently, the issue of mental health insurance – or the lack of it in Malaysia – made the headlines again. On our Public Health series, we hope to keep the conversation going, so we’re speaking to Dr Hazli Zakaria, President of the Malaysian Psychiatric Association. We’ll be exploring whose purview does this come under and what is the role of all the different stakeholders involved in mental healthcare.
