We focus our activities on four priority areas: healthcare reform; non-communicable diseases; food security; and transgender health.

We carry out independent analysis of critical sector-wide and disease-specific challenges and opportunities, and offer new perspectives for informed discussion and debate.

As often as possible, policy recommendations are developed in collaboration with policymakers, experts and stakeholders in each area.

Healthcare Reforms

Healthcare reform is an issue that has been discussed for at least two decades. Under this existing government, will institutional reforms for an adaptive and sustainable healthcare system delivering integrated models of care finally happen and will it have public support?

Non-Communicable Diseases

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are emerging as the leading cause of death in Malaysia. About two-thirds of Malaysians have at least one NCD. What policies and interventions are needed in response?

Food Security

We look at the linkages of food security with health, sustainable economic development, environment, social justice and trade.

Transgender Health

Transgender people face numerous health disparities, stigma, discrimination, and lack of access to quality care. How do medical institutions, communities and individuals respond to their care?
