Women take on leadership

Posted: 19 Dec 2013 03:23 PM PST

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth saw the first batch of women in its central leadership. 

They are vice-president Nicole Wong Siaw Ting and eight central committee members –Tee Tze Wei, Nian Yien, Mandy Kaw Shuen Hui, Heng Sinn Yee, Wai Bee Hoon, Teow Chia Ling, Yap Lay Keat and Jasmine Chan Kit Mun. 

Being the first woman to hold a high post in the wing where three-quarters of its members are men, Wong said her main concern was what her next course of action should be. 

"I hope to bring more women into the wing, and prove to the men that we are not the weaker ones.

"I would like to empower more women into the decision-making level," she said. 

As the new youth leadership comprised members from different teams, Wong said this clearly showed the delegates were not voting by faction. 

Chan said she would work together with the rest of the movement's committee members to revamp the wing and to carry out projects beneficial to the party, society and nation. 

"I will stress on empowering youths in various fields such as education, and to provide them with a platform to gain more exposure," she added.

Treatment costs controlled, Dewan told

Posted: 19 Dec 2013 08:00 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR: The cost of seeking treatment at Government and private hospitals is controlled, and these institutions are not at liberty to revise their charges, said Deputy Health Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya.

Replying to a supplementary question from Senator Datuk Yunus Kurus at Dewan Negara yesterday, Hilmi said patients who are unhappy with the charges could complain to the ministry.

He added that the cost of treatment at private hospitals was regulated under the Private Healthcare Services and Facilities Regulations 2006.

Elaborating further in response to Yunus' question, Dr Hilmi said the government had allocated RM54mil to the ministry to educate people on the need to practise healthy living.

As a means of checking the rising cost of medical treatment, the ministry had adopted the approach of disease prevention through various programmes, he said. — Bernama
