About Us

Our Mission


CodeBlue seeks to promote health care as a human right. We report on important issues and policies related to health care in Malaysia and around the world. We make ordinary people’s voices heard so that they can exercise their right to health and live well.

Health care is personal; the personal must be political so that the people can advocate for better policies that benefit the many, not the few rich and powerful.



In a country like Malaysia with little awareness of one’s right to health, we want to tell stories about people’s battles with disease, struggles in caring for sick loved ones, and, crucially, their demands for better policies to improve health and prevent unnecessary deaths. CodeBlue seeks to embolden people to advocate for their right to health care so that health issues are front and centre in Malaysia.



CodeBlue serves the people, first and foremost. We do not align ourselves with the government of the day, any political party, or powerful business interests. Our reporting is based on what matters to our readers and what affects their lives and their ability to enjoy better health care.



CodeBlue indicates clearly if an article is an opinion or sponsored or advertising content. We also disclose relationships with any outside partners on any reports. CodeBlue will fix any errors in our articles by appending a correction note at the bottom explaining what was corrected.



CodeBlue is an editorially independent programme of the Galen Centre for Health & Social Policy, a public policy research and advocacy organisation based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The centre is committed to a free market approach in the development of a patient-centric and community-focused health and social sector.



Honesty is key. We strive to report accurately and fairly. CodeBlue is committed to publishing all sides to a story. Diversity of opinion and perspective is crucial for robust debates and arguments, especially on an important topic like health care. Our reportage features views in an unbiased manner, but we will state the facts if newsmakers make false or misleading claims.
