We are an independent non-party think tank promoting a vision of health and social care based on accountability, transparency and the public interest. We are committed to a free market approach in the development of patient-centric and community-focused health and social sectors.
We set out ideas and ground realities that will help improve and achieve a high quality health and social care system for people in Malaysia.
Our values guide how we approach our work:
- robust and evidence-based
- open to collaboration and engagement
- relevant, supportive but also challenging when necessary
- taking ownership
We link research, analysis and policies with the people working on the front-lines of healthcare and social services. We believe this is the best way to inform effective policy-making at all levels. We work to support development of affordable, equitable and high quality care.
Where other organisations and agencies might focus only one point of view, we help see all perspectives and work bringing them to the table. Our greatest value is not just our ability to connect the dots, we inform and generate debate.
We help develop and evaluate ideas and concepts, from initial proposals through to a fully developed strategy for project or programme of work. We assist to translate these ideas into action with recommendations for design and delivery.
We share what we learn, collaborate with others and help build individual and community skills and knowledge. We aim to make a difference and contribute to a healthier population.
Independence is important. We pride ourselves on being trusted for the objectivity and independence of our work.
We recognise that to make the impact we seek, people must be confident in the objectivity of our research and analysis and our ability to speak up and tell truth to power.
