MALAYSIA:::235,000 Benefited From Socso's Health Screening Programme

KOTA KINABALU, Nov 26 (Bernama) -- Over 235,000 Socso (Social Security Organisation) contributors have benefited from its Health Screening Programme to date, said Human Resource Minister Datuk Richard Riot Jaem.

He said of the 82,130 vouchers of the programme distributed in Sabah, more than 10,000 contributors made use of them since January with the total cost coming to RM918,500.

"The HSP was introduced because of the increasing number of cases of workers being affected by Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD).

"With the availability of the HSP, it allows early intervention so that the affected workers get the needed treatment," he said at a Job and HSP carnival organised by the Sabah Manpower Department and Socso here today.

He urged Socso contributors to take full advantage of the facility which enables contributors aged 40 and above to go for health screening at approved clinics.
