KUCHING, June 2: The Ministry of Health (MOH) has called on private general practitioners (GPs) to join the Madani Medical Scheme.

The pilot project starts on June 15, offering free healthcare services to recipients of the Sumbangan Tunai Rahmah (STR) cash aid.

This project will be held in 10 districts across the country namely Kuala Lumpur and the districts of Gombak, Hulu Langat, Klang and Petaling (Selangor); Kinta (Perak), Timur Laut (Penang); Johor Bahru (Johor); Kota Kinabalu (Sabah); and Kuching (Sarawak).

Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa said the programme aims to assist the B40 group in obtaining acute primary care services at a GP located near them.

This would subsequently reduce congestion and waiting time for patients at government healthcare facilities.

“The ministry invites GPs in these locations to register as a panel clinic for the scheme from today through the ProtectHealth’s website at, or by contacting 03-86872525,” she said in a statement today. — DayakDaily
