These include: early preparedness, continuous adaptation, the importance of public-private partnerships, effective communication, and prioritising the safety and well-being of frontline workers.

Dr. Kamal Amzan, has previously written notable pieces like ‘Dissecting Malaysia’s Healthcare: The Great Dichotomy’ and ‘Understanding Independence: A Conceptual Shift,’ authored this eight-chapter book, aptly titled ‘Weathering The Storm,’ signifying a successful resolution following a challenging period.
