Top 10 Health Stories of the Year 2008

Health is wealth, so it would pay off if you keep abreast of the main news on the health front. Doctor 2008's list of Top 10 is interesting, with melamine at No 4 and making healthcare affordable and accessible to all at No 10.

On my list, the attempt to take over the Insitute Jantung Negara by Sime Darby was the biggest health story for 2008 (after melamine) and one of the worst corporate takeover proposals of all time, but I'm a layman and a socio-political blogger so it's different.

IJN's survival in its current form will be a major concern for 2009, too.

Read Doctor 2008's Top 10 health news of the year, here.

  2. Salam Bro Rocky...

    I think they should move out the hospital all together...relocate somewhere more relaxing for the patients...fresh air, sound of animals in the morning...

    If Sime had proposed that with a replacement ready in operation mode.....it could have been a good real estate play....

  5. All the health n hazardous problem is due to greed. Milamine is abt greedy ppl who just want to cut cost n gain a high profit. Same as to IJN by Sime darby. Greed..money..greed..money..Sifat manusia daripada azali.
