Drawing on the results of the Malaysia Ageing and Retirement Survey Wave 2, this report analyzes the health and socioeconomic well-being of older adults and recommends ways Malaysia can provide affordable care for its steadily ageing population.

Based on face-to-face and telephone interviews with nearly 5,000 people aged over 40, it offers detailed information on their living arrangements, daily activities, and economic security, to help understand the evolving needs and challenges of older people. It explains how introducing a basic universal pension, rolling out health campaigns, and devising community incentive programs could help Malaysia support and protect its ageing population.
