UHC PHC Self-Assessment in Malaysia

January 29, 2021

Malaysia’s use of the JLN UHC PHC Self-Assessment produced findings that were used to improve public private partnerships to increase PHC coverage.

This case study profiles the use of the Universal Health Coverage Primary Health Care Self-Assessment Tool in Malaysia. Malaysia piloted this self-assessment tool as a cross-sectional study collecting both qualitative and quantitative data through in-person interviews and a written self-reported questionnaire. Through the findings, the team was able to assess how financial coverage institutions interact with other PHC actors and programs and identify opportunities to align health financing with PHC goals in Malaysia.
