An interesting perspective on illegal immigration and a number of issues ~

Quote
Immigrants walk this nation's borders with wanton ease. We have acts and regulations to convict and jail a doctor if a clinic is unlicensed as in the Basmullah case, but a stall-owner who puts a 100 people in hospital because his workers are not vaccinated for typhoid gets away with a punitive fine.


Quote
A hostel warden who cramps 12 students into a tiny dorm endangering them to TB or influenza gets away with a lecture while a doctor who misses a sodomised patient gets hounded like a dog. And, of course, we have immigration officers who let in thousands of disease-bearing migrant workers at the border getting off scot-free while the health director-general is busy assembling a panel of doctors colluding on post-mortem medical reports.

But you can never substitute nor replace public healthcare with purely hospital-based medicine. That would be a fatal error, especially in Malaysia with our porous borders, large immigrant population and now our outstretched rural health care services.

Is public healthcare different from 'hospital' or 'technology' based medicine?

It seems like the U.S. keeps spending more and more on technology, but people aren't getting healthier, access to care isn't improving.  Is technology sucking the life out of our healthcare system?
