Message from the President







Dear Members,

I feel privileged to accept the role of President of the Academy of Family Physicians of Malaysia, and I am grateful to our past presidents for their service and leadership.

Time and time again we are reminded that a strong primary medical care system is essential to the equity, efficiency and effectiveness of the health system as a whole. 

Primary healthcare and general practice in Malaysia continue to face numerous challenges. Nevertheless, thru various efforts and collaborations the Academy strives to find lasting solutions to raise the standard of primary medical care in Malaysia.

The academy values its associations with the public and private universities, the Family Medicine Specialists Organisation as well as other local and international family medicine bodies such as the World Organisation of Family Doctors.

We are indeed proud of our association with the Royal Australian College of GPs together with whom the Academy conducts the Conjoint MAFP/FRACGP Examinations since 1982.

The Academy is equally delighted and greatly values the more recent Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health of Malaysia, in delivering a parallel pathway for doctors to specialise in Family Medicine.

I would like to express my gratitude to our outgoing President, Prof Datuk Dr Sheikh Mohd Amin, EXCO & Council members, Heads of various Academic Committees, Board of Censors, Board of Examiners, Chapter of Teachers, the Malaysian Primary Care Research Group and the Editorial Board of the Academy who have all been working tirelessly over the past year to bring about various improvements and accomplishments to benefit our members.

Working with the newly elected executive committee and Council of the Academy, I look forward to working towards delivering the various efforts and initiatives in line with the mission and objectives of the Academy. I look to all of you, my compatriots in medicine and health care, for your support, commitment and partnership in taking our Academy to greater heights.  

A/Prof. Dr. Nurjahan Bt Mohd. Ibrahim
