Event Details

AMCHAM is pleased to invite you to our first half day program for the year, AMCHAM Healthcare Forum 2019 on Thursday, March 28 from 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel.


The purpose of the AMCHAM Healthcare Forum 2019 is to foster a productive public-private dialogue around the role that the private sector can play in delivering enhanced healthcare outcomes for Malaysia, and how this relates to the government's healthcare strategy. We will be joined by senior officials from the Ministry of Health and other government agencies, as well as leadership from a diverse range of private sector stakeholders in the healthcare sector.


The Pakatan Harapan government's stated ambition is for total healthcare spending in Malaysia to reach 7% of GDP (around RM 100bn), while significantly improving allocative efficiency so that this spending leads to enhanced healthcare outcomes for the rakyat. To achieve this goal will require continued investments from both the public and private sectors, working in tandem to optimise the assignment of responsibilities and financial resources, and to unleash the productivity gains of a healthy and active citizenry.

There will be two panel discussions throughout this program to share about how private sector initiatives help to increase the access to healthcare in Malaysia, and to identify key policy pillars that must be in place in order to facilitate and encourage private sector investment in a nation's healthcare sector.

The program will conclude with a VIP luncheon, with keynote address provided by Datuk Seri Dr. Haji Dzulkefly bin Ahmad, Malaysia's Minister of Health.

Who Should Attend

This program will be of interest to senior management, public affairs, corporate communications and business development professionals from any company with activities in the healthcare sector, including but not limited to pharmaceutical, medical devices, insurance, and new technologies.

We will also welcome a range of invited government officials from relevant departments including Ministry of Health, MITI, MIDA, Ministry of Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs, and Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development.

How To Participate

The networking coffee break and luncheon are included in the ticket price. Sponsorship packages and corporate tables will close on Friday, 22 March - please enquire with Ms. Elyna Ngu at
