Health Ministry allows doctors 14-day leave to help in humanitarian missions

KUALA SELANGOR, The Malaysian Health Ministry (KKM) has given relaxation to government medical doctors, especially surgeons, to take unrecorded leave to become volunteers in any humanitarian mission to countries facing unrest.

Its minister, Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad said this was because the ministry had a policy that allowed the professional groups to go on leave for 14 days to offer their expertise to the group needing such services.
