PHILANTHROPY TOWARDS BETTER PUBLIC HEALTH

TDM contributes 2% of its consolidated annual net profit  after taxation, minority interest and dividend payments to  approved organisations in Terengganu that support social  causes, sports and economic development.

A free community-based health screening programme has  been designed to identify and educate individuals on the  increased risk of chronic diseases. The screening effort,  organised by our hospitals, targets risk factors for the  presence of common chronic diseases, which include obesity,  hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It aims to  raise awareness early, when appropriate intervention may  delay or prevent disease progression and related health  complications. Local multimedia promotional efforts based  on successful social marketing techniques target people at  risk and motivate them to participate in screening events.  The screenings are held in public areas and social centres.
