Background

The outreach clinic programme for Rohingya persons of concern in Johor is a collaborative effort between UNHCR and MERCY Malaysia, and supported by the Embassy of the Czech Republic.

The collaboration which started in April 2007 in Klang aimed to address the primary healthcare of the Rohingyas. The target area was shifted to Johor to fill in the gap of the need. This particular minority often do not receive the professional healthcare they need as they lack the financial security and as such have limited access to healthcare.
