Press Statement YB Health Minister 7 Nov 2015: No Directive to Refuse Treatment Based on Clothing 

      PRESS STATEMENT 

      MINISTER OF HEALTH MALAYSIA

      NO DIRECTIVE TO REFUSE TREATMENT BASED ON CLOTHING

        
      The Ministry of Health (MOH) would like to refer to an article in The Rakyat Post titled ‘Two year old toddler denied treatment as his mothers pants were apparently too short’ on November 6, 2015.

      We would like to reiterate policy of MOH is to provide services to all regardless of age, sex, marital status, socio-cultural standing, religious values or political inclinations. There is no directive from the Ministry to any hospital or clinic to discriminate against any individual based upon one’s clothing more so during times of emergency.

      Preliminary investigations have already been initiated and the complaint will be looked in a just and fair manner.

      Thank you

      Datuk Seri Dr S.Subramaniam

      Minister of Health Malaysia

      7 November 2015
