Malaysia, with a score of 95 out of 100, was ranked first in the Best Healthcare in the World category of the 2019 International Living Annual Global Retirement Index.

According to the website, Malaysia ranked first with its world-class healthcare services and sophisticated infrastructure.

It said that with 13 hospitals in the country accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), almost all doctors were trained in the United Kingdom, the United States or Australia, and were fluent in English.

“There are both private and public hospitals for expatriates to choose from, to suit one's needs though the private hospitals tend to be a bit more expensive but are more up to Western standards than the public hospitals,” it said.

“The prescriptions in Malaysia cost a fraction of what you pay at home. But it's not just the cost that is attractive, it's the service.

“Pharmacists, similar to the rest of medical staff in Malaysia, are well-trained and informed. The Malaysians are friendly people, but it's the genuine interest they take which impresses,” it said.
