World Asthma Day 2022 - Closing Gaps in Asthma Care

It sure was interesting attending the World Asthma Day Conference 2022 , and I learnt quite a bit about that scary respiratory disease that affected some of my friends and family members…

The event was officiated by the Minister of Health, YB Khairy Jamaluddin, and held to commemorate the celebration of this year’s World Asthma Day in collaboration with the Malaysian Thoracic Society (MTS), Malaysian Family Medicine Specialists’ Association (FMSA), Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), Malaysian Pharmacists Society (MPS), AstraZeneca Malaysia and NVS - Novartis Malaysia….

This half-day conference discussed the challenges and solutions in addressing the gaps in asthma care in Malaysia in line with the World Asthma Day theme this year: Closing Gaps in Asthma Care. 

Did you know that in Malaysia, asthma affects approximately two million children and adults with respiratory diseases sadly being the second most common cause of death within the Ministry of Health hospitals.

The lack of recognition of asthma as an area of focus in the national healthcare agenda, in particular has been cited as one of the major barriers in enabling earlier and equitable access to both diagnosis and evidence-guided treatment among the asthma patients in the country…

I like that how healthcare experts, patient representatives and industry partners have come together to explore the potential of making asthma as a key non-communicable disease (NCD) priority area in Malaysia in the conference…

The conference ended with the pledge signing by multi-stakeholders to express their joint commitment in improving asthma care in Malaysia while witnessed by YB Khairy in his role as our country’s Minister of Health…

YB Khairy also officiated the relaunch of Asthma Malaysia website which will be serving as a one-stop information hub for the public on asthma.

Asthma Malaysia is a non-profitable organization with the mission to serve as a credible resource on asthma, to raise awareness of best standards of care and to empower patients in the management of their asthma.

Asthma Malaysia’s vision is to be Malaysia’s leading portal for asthma with a view of creating more informed and empowered patients.

  2. Elon Musk's "Free Speech" Theory Is Not Fictional Like 90% Accounts: Rachit Kaushik

    After buying 9.2 percent stake in micro-blogging site Twitter in early April, Elon Musk, the world's richest person, has now put him on temporary hold after buying the entire stake of the company for a huge amount of $ 44 billion. The reason for which he has told spam. Quoting one of his tweets, he estimated that more than 90 percent of Twitter's daily active users could be bots or fake accounts. However, experts say it could be a ploy to put the deal on hold so that Twitter can renegotiate at a lower cost.
