PROTECTHEALTH Corp Sdn Bhd has bagged two awards Outstanding Covid-19 Vaccination Delivery of the Year and Asia Pacific Outstanding Business Leader Lifetime Achievement Award recently.
“These two awards are testament to ProtectHealth’s dedication and recognition of our capabilities and leadership in managing the national-scale initiative and spearheading public-private partnership in healthcare,” said ProtectHealth’s CEO Datuk Dr Anas Alam Faizli (picture) in a statement yesterday.
“These awards are also a tribute and appreciation of the tireless collective efforts of all ProtectHealth employees and partners through Peduli Kesihatan for the B40 Group (Peka B40) and the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NCIP).
The fight against the pandemic is not over and ProtectHealth will continue to assist the Ministry of Health (MoH) and the government for any national health agenda,” he added.
ProtectHealth has been voted the Outstanding Covid-19 Vaccination Delivery of the Year at the GlobalHealth Asia Pacific Awards 2021 organised by GlobalHealth and Travel.
Meanwhile, ProtectHealth CEO received the Asia Pacific Outstanding Business Leader Lifetime Achievement Award at the Asia Pacific Outstanding Business Leader Achievement Awards by The KSI Strategic Institute for the Asia Pacific which is one of the region’s leading private independent think tanks established in providing strategic advisory, high-level executive briefings, international conferences, policy roundtables and national summits.
Association of Private Hospitals Malaysia president Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh said that ProtectHealth has played a pivotal role during the pandemic with precise and timely management of the vaccine rollout, particularly to the private healthcare sector.
“Their efforts made private vaccination easier as private hospitals had committed to assist the government in the NCIP. We hope this exercise on vaccination now sets a stage for ProtectHealth to embark on other public-private partnership programmes with the MoH and private healthcare,” he said in a separate statement.
Incorporated on Dec 19, 2016, ProtectHealth, is a wholly owned subsidiary of ProtectHealth Malaysia, established under the MoH.
As a not-for-profit company, ProtectHealth coordinates, administers and manages initiatives related to financing healthcare services as mandated by MoH.
ProtectHealth is the healthcare scheme administrator for Peka B40, electronic service provider for Skim Perlindungan Insurans Kesihatan Pekerja Asing, and latest, the implementer of private medical practitioner and healthcare NGO participation in NCIP.
To date, ProtectHealth, through private medical practitioners and healthcare NGOs, has contributed more than 46% or 28 million doses in NCIP. The programme is by far the largest government programme ever executed in the country, in terms of the number of people involved, 27 million people and its short time frame. NCIP is also the largest ever public-private partnership effort ever implemented in healthcare.
