Within the current exercise of reforming the health care system, underlying all issues, is the reassessment of the role of government.
It is a government's responsibility and concern that the health sector be accessible and equitable to the population, and more important that the health sector be more efficient and affordable.
Many governments in the world attempt to provide universal health care services to their population through public health care provisions.
This paper reviews and analyses the experience of the Malaysian health system, focusing on the performance of the system in relation to access and equity.
The performance of the Malaysian health system has been impressive.
At minimum cost it has achieved virtually accessible and equitable health care to the entire population.
This is evident by analysing almost all the commonly used indicators.
These clearly show that when matched to comparable countries, health outcome is even better than predicted value.
