The Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH), the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists (MSA) and Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) joined hands for Global Surgery Initiative (GSI) – a first of its kind Public-Private Partnership initiative for corporate social responsibility that aims to provide access to safe and affordable surgical and anaesthesia care in underserved areas in Malaysia.
The MSA has mooted this GSI as a CSR project with the objective of the anaesthesiology fraternity rendering additional services to the country and community. This is just the beginning as the MSA looks forward to collaborate with other like-minded NGOs and private institutions to further this Initiative. The GSI was officially launched at SJMC earlier today in conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists celebration.
“In conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of the MSA, the representative body for anaesthesiologists in Malaysia, we are proud to be part of such a meaningful collaboration. We are grateful for the growing support towards establishing a safe and a patient centred anaesthesia in the underserved areas”, said Professor Dr Ina Ismiarti Shariffuddin, President of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists (MSA).
