Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Malaysia is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 1.9 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 49,600 physicians in Malaysia, there are about 1.51 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 18 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
