By Mustakim Ramli

SHAH ALAM, May 31 — Individuals who constantly experience headaches, pain in the chest and stomach or urinary incontinence are advised to undergo health screenings via the Selangor Saring programme.

State executive councillor for public health Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud said the public can save on healthcare costs as the state government is providing the service for free, with the programme taking place in each state constituency.

“If you do screenings outside the cost is expensive, and this is not yet taking into account the distance between one’s home and the hospital. So immediately register yourself under the Selangor Saring programme via the SELangkah app.

“Registration is free. The screenings are offered based on the individual risk factor evaluation via the early screening for on the SELangkah app,” she said in a Facebook post.

The state government has allocated RM3.4 million for Selangor Saring, which is expected to benefit up to 39,000 Selangor residents, particularly those with a family history of ailments, obese individuals, and those leading unhealthy lifestyles.

Running from May 22 to September 4, the programme offers physical screenings, blood and urine tests, optical, cervical and breast cancer tests, as well as colorectal and prostate cancer tests.
