Countries should make CPR a compulsory subject

By Datuk Seri Ang Lai Soon

I am delighted to note that the Federal Ministry of Education is responding positively to my suggestion to make cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) a compulsory subject in the country.

Deputy Minister of Education Datuk Chong Sin Woon said his ministry would study the proposal.

I believe that many a precious life can be saved if all students, including the staff of course, are trained in CPR.

I am confident that St John Ambulance and other similar organizations can play a key role in the successful implementation of this proposal.

I hope that not only Malaysia, but education ministries in all countries will make CPR a compulsory subject in their respective countries.

Millions and millions of lives would have been saved!

I believe the implementation of this proposal will be a milestone in the history of healthcare anywhere.

Let this nation take the lead!

The Malaysian Federal Ministry of Health must be highly commended for being receptive to new ideas.

All must give the fullest support to the Federal Government, the Minister, Deputy Minister and their ministry in their effort to translate this proposal to reality.

Everyone will benefit!

(Datuk Seri Ang Lai Soon is Founder, Chairman and Commander of St John Ambulance Sarawak.)
