Did you know that asthma affects almost 2 million children and adults with respiratory diseases being the second most common cause of death within the Ministry of Health hospitals in Malaysia?

On 19th May  2022, Asthma Malaysia organised a half-day conference at the Connexion Conference and Event Centre, Kuala Lumpur, aimed to discuss 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. 

The conference was officiated by the Minister of Health, YB Khairy Jamaluddin and is held in collaboration with the Malaysian Thoracic Society (MTS), Malaysian Family Medicine Specialists’ Association (FMSA), Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), Malaysia Pharmacists Society (MPS), AstraZeneca Malaysia and NVS – Novartis Malaysia.

A series of talks and dialogue led by medical experts and patient representative were held to share and explore the potentials of making asthma a key non-communicable disease (NCD) priority area in Malaysia. 

At the end of the conference, YB Khairy witnessed the pledge signing by multi-stakeholders who aspire to improve asthma care in Malaysia. YB Khairy also officiated the relaunch of Asthma Malaysia website, a one-stop information hub for the general public on asthma.
