Problem Statement:

Stateless person - even though to atleast one Malaysian parent do not have access to reasonable healthcare and made to pay foreigner rate, resulting many person opting not to access healthcare even if its a transmittable disease.

Value(s) and Belief(s):

Health is fundamental Human Right

Proposal of Solution:

Healthcare for stateless persons should be half the rate of foreigner rate as offered to UNHCR Card holders. Besides the overall treatment charge, children immunisation programme, and maternal and child health follow-ups should be provided by the state free of charge as basic healthcare for the residents, without the discrimination of papers -- the government just needs to find ways to overcome the technical barriers in the administrative matters
