MMA president now heads Commonwealth Medical Association

Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) president Dr Muruga Raj Rajathurai has been elected as Commonwealth Medical Association (CMA) president for a two-year term, effective yesterday.

Former CMA president Dr Osahon Enabulele handed over the reins to Muruga during the association’s 26th triennial conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Muruga said during his term, he planned to focus on greater access to healthcare, the increase in non-communicable diseases, mental health, the ageing population and climate change.

“It is a great honour to lead one of the largest and most established associations from Commonwealth nations on the many global health issues we are facing today.

“I am looking forward to meeting regularly with the heads of national medical associations on addressing these issues and for sharing of knowledge,” he said during his acceptance speech.

Muruga said he would work towards enhancing medical student exchange programmes to encourage greater networking among Commonwealth nations.

“Knowledge sharing in our profession has significantly contributed to many medical breakthroughs.”

Established in 1952, CMA is an independent organisation comprising medical associations from 54 Commonwealth nations. It serves to enhance people’s health, well-being and human rights.

The last Malaysian to helm the association was Dr P Krishnan, who served as CMA president from 2001 to 2004. – FMT
