FINALLY AFTER 28 YEARS OF WAITING




MORE THAN 2 DECADES OF HISTORY CONCERNING THE ALLIED HEALTH BILL FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE.












Excerpts above are just memories now, as the current bill had undergone many changes, some clauses added in, some removed until it emerge as it is now.  Some of the matters proposed  then by MFMLT, the predecessor of MIMLS as seen in excerpts will not be realised now but kudos to the Allied Health Science Division (BSKB) of the Malaysian Ministry of Health for finally making the act a reality.

Our heartiest appreciation to the staffs of BSKB as their dedication and laborious hard work is indeed the driving force to this fruitful finale and highly commendable.
