Assalamualaikum and warm greetings from Malaysia Healthcare.
A vibrant and exciting third quarter has just flashed past us – but not without leaving behind an abundance of memories and achievements in its wake.
In the past three months, we have concluded two major events, participated in multiple international events, hosted delegates from overseas who came to experience Malaysia Healthcare, launched our inaugural industry report, Malaysia Healthcare Chronicles, and our second Malaysia International Referral Centre in China! Just looking back at these achievements takes my breath away. It is amazing what Malaysia Healthcare can accomplish when we put our heads and hearts together.
Pulling off two international events in the span of two months was an amazing experience. On the 23rd of August 2019, we concluded our inaugural Medical Travel Media Awards (MTMA 2019) with a bang! This one-of-a-kind award honours members of the media who have played a tremendously contributing role in pushing awareness of Malaysia Healthcare throughout the country and the world. We were glad to see happy smiles and joyous faces after the event concluded. This has been encouraging to witness and we will be continuing with MTMA 2020 next year!
A month later, insigHT2019 took place - and it was a blast! We witnessed much support from the government with three ministers in attendance: YB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Minister of Finance; YB Datuk Wira Haji Amiruddin bin Hamzah, Deputy Minister of Finance and YB Dr. Lee Boon Chye, Deputy Minister of Health. We successfully launched our inaugural industry report, Malaysia Healthcare Chronicles, which recounts the past ten years of Malaysia’s healthcare travel journey. We had more than 300 delegates in attendance, an amazing line-up of sponsors and international speakers as well as an exciting two-days of knowledge exchange and tantalizing discussion on healthcare travel. We had much fun running insigHT2019 and we are looking forward to sharing a huge surprise with you about insigHT2020!

Moving forward, we are pooling our resources and talent in preparation for Malaysia Year of Healthcare Travel 2020 (MYHT 2020). Taking place from 1st January to 31st December 2020, MYHT 2020 presents to healthcare travellers the year for bringing a change to their lifestyles for the better! We look forward to welcoming all to come Experience Malaysia Healthcare during MYHT 2020!
As we turn the page to the last quarter of the year, I call upon all stakeholders and partners to get excited and get onboard with us on the journey towards 2020. Together, Malaysia Healthcare wins!
