IHH Healthcare Malaysia (IHH Malaysia), a leading healthcare provider dedicated to delivering world-class healthcare services is excited to launch its new initiative, ‘Act Sooner, Live Better,’ which highlights the importance of early medical intervention in Heart, Cancer, and Bone and Joint care. 

For the benefit of Penangites, the ‘Act Sooner, Live Better’ roadshow will take place at the Gurney Plaza Shopping Mall from June 5th to 9th, 2024.

This initiative not only promotes timely diagnosis and treatments, but also showcases the advanced technologies, specialized treatments, and expert care available in these key areas to improve health outcomes.

According to the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019, only 49 percent of Malaysians underwent health screenings, highlighting the urgent need for increased awareness about the importance of regular check-ups. Furthermore, heart disease remains the leading cause of premature deaths in Malaysia, comprising 18.4% of medically certified deaths in 2022, according to the Department of Statistics Malaysia. Similarly, cancer rates have increased from 10.5% in 2021 to 12.6% in 2022. Additionally, more people are experiencing issues with their bones and joints, often due to inactive lifestyles.

“The ‘Act Sooner, Live Better’ initiative highlights our commitment to preventive healthcare, emphasising the importance of regular health screenings and early medical intervention, says Sipika Singh, Chief Commercial Officer of IHH Healthcare Malaysia. “This initiative mirrors our commitment to patient well-being. Our aim is to enhance patients’ health by providing exceptional value through our comprehensive diagnostic, treatment, and state-of-the-art facilities.”

“At IHH Healthcare Malaysia hospitals, we prioritise delivering personalised care designed to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our objective is to enhance clinical outcomes by offering accurate diagnoses, personalised treatment plans, and peace of mind during recovery, ultimately leading to an improved quality of life. This approach ensures that we not only meet but exceed the healthcare expectations of those we serve, preparing individuals and communities to effectively navigate health challenges,” continues Sipika Singh.

As a leading healthcare provider, IHH Malaysia is dedicated to educating the public with insightful knowledge through the ‘Act Sooner, Live Better’ roadshow. Visitors to the event will embark on an immersive and educational journey upon entering “The Black Box.” 

Here, they can access vital information about heart, cancer, and bone and joint care. Attendees can also take advantage of complimentary health screenings and exclusive health packages, and participate in engaging activities such as TikTok AR filters, online contests, and educational games — all meticulously designed to heighten awareness and foster proactive health management.

The ‘Act Sooner, Live Better’ roadshow then move on to the Aeon Mall Tebrau City from July 5th to 7th, 2024.
