There are reports that some pharmacies and clinics are low on supply for common medicines like paracetamol, cough syrup and lozenges for sore throat, but is this situation short-lived? And a study commissioned by the insurance industry found that medical treatment costs have increased by around 8-9 percent annually between 2013-2018. How worried should we be about all these issues, and what is the Malaysian Health White Paper update? Questions we ask Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh, President, Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia (APHM).
