Greater Petaling


Greater Petaling joined C/Can a year after Malaysia hosted the World Cancer Congress, with the goal of maintaining the momentum of this global event and improving cancer survival rates in Malaysia, which are low compared to other upper-middle-income countries. Specifically, Greater Petaling is aiming to improve cross-city collaboration, promote knowledge-sharing and build on Malaysia’s strong political commitment to strengthen cancer care.
