HEALTHCARE LANDSCAPE: The Malaysian healthcare system is evolving with a number of healthcare facilities, especially in the private sector. There are an estimated 358 hospitals in the country, 209 of which are managed by the private sector

INVESTMENT CLIMATE: Opportunities in Malaysia possibly lie outside of healthcare delivery. The government outlined six focus areas for healthcare: private health insurance for foreign workers, creating a clinical trials hub, pursuing generic opportunities, promoting medical tourism, building teleradiology services, and developing a medical metropolis. Malaysian medical devices sector is possibly the most developed compared to rest of Southeast Asia

CHALLENGES: Healthcare delivery sector is dominated by 2 key players, there is a lack of mid-sized groups which match our investment criteria. Pharmaceutical sector is dominated by government linked companies
