Rising Costs of Healthcare

Professor Daniel Reidpath, Population Health Specialist

Rising Costs of Healthcare

From the year 2000 to 2010, healthcare expenditure in most developed and developing countries has more than doubled. In Malaysia, medical inflation is estimated at about 15% per year.

What does this mean for the future of healthcare in our country? Will quality healthcare only be available to the people who can afford it, namely the very wealthy?

Professor Daniel Reidpath addresses all the factors that contribute to the rising costs of healthcare and whether we can arrest it.
