THE Health Ministry is resuming its Skim Peduli Kesihatan for the B40 group, Peka B40, in Sarawak following the disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns. The ministry hopes to screen for non-communicable diseases (NCD) among those in the bottom 40% household income range.

The programme, which is for early detection of NCDs and early intervention, had only managed to screen 78,241 people or a mere 10% of those who are eligible in Sarawak when the movement control order (MCO) was imposed two years ago, said ProtectHealth Corporation Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer Dr Anas Alam Faizli in Kuching today.
