KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 17, 2018--Fusionex is lending its support to the Mobile Medical Wellness Awareness Outreach Program.

The van and program were launched by Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur DiRaja president Datuk Seri Nelson Kwok who took his oath at the Club’s 91st installation recently. He explained that the National Health and Morbidity Survey showed 17.5% of those aged 18 and above have diabetes and almost half of the population, or about 9.6 million people, have high blood or high cholesterol levels.

“It is very worrying that more than half the population has diabetes and hypertension, and four out of five people with high blood cholesterol levels are unaware of their condition,” he said, adding that “we will be conducting awareness programs on preventing the Three Highs as well as providing free tests.”

In addition to the outreach program, they will organize an art competition in January targeting the younger generation in schools and colleges. The program aims to reach 50,000 and impact 500,000 Malaysians. The program is slated to be launched internationally next March with the participation of seven sister clubs.

Fusionex Founder and Group CEO Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh said, “We are delighted to be a part of this amazing outreach program led by the Rotary Club and look forward to making this a resounding success. We hope that the public will take full advantage of the education opportunities as well as free medical tests to improve the quality of life in their families and communities. We hope that with Fusionex’s support towards this noble Rotary Club-led initiative, Malaysians will be able to live healthier and better.”
