TRADITIONAL AND COMPLEMENTARY UNIT

On 11 January 2006, the Malaysian Cabinet had agreed with the proposal of the Ministry of Health (MOH) to establish T&CM units at MOH hospitals in order to integrate selected T&CM practices into the national health care system. Three MOH hospitals were selected for the pilot project. As of January 2020, 15 MOH hospitals are providing T&CM services in Malaysia. (Schedule 1)

Among the T&CM services offered in MOH hospitals are:

  1. Traditional Massage
  2. Acupuncture
  3. Herbal Therapy as an Adjunct Treatment for Cancer
  4. Shirodhara
  5. External Basti Therapy
  6. Varmam Therapy

The T&CM services provided in the MOH hospitals are for specific indications only as shown in Schedule 2.

For your information, Traditional Postnatal Care (TPC) was provided at MOH hospitals until July 2018 after which the provision of TPC services were transformed to primary health care level. For further clarification regarding TPC services, please contact Traditional and Complementary Medicine Division (T&CMD) or the relevant state health department.
