During the ceremony, Dr Noor Hisham also received the Excellent Healthcare Service Provider award on behalf of the Ministry of Health (MoH).

Dr Noor Hisham in his speech prior to receiving the awards said they reflected the dedication, commitment, sacrifice and resilience of each and every individual in the ministry as well as various agencies to provide the best healthcare service to the people and country.

Meanwhile, Althoff said Malaysia had successfully managed to flatten the Covid-19 curve due to the hard work of the MoH team under the leadership of Dr Noor Hisham.
