The backbone of the government health care delivery system in Sarawak is the static health facilities and mobile units. The static facilities cover about 70% of the population and the mobile units like Village Health Teams and the Flying Doctor Service have increased access to almost 90%. In 1983 the Sarawak Health Department has also introduced a village health volunteer scheme known as the Village Health Promoter Programme, to enable basic health care to be provided to remote areas on a more continual basis. Sarawak has a two-tier referral system where cases requiring further treatment are referred from clinics to hospitals. Only those who need specialist care are referred to specialist clinics in the larger hospitals. Sarawak has 187 rural health clinics that function as “one-stop” family health centres, providing an integrated service comprising maternal & child care, general outpatient care and environmental sanitation. All clinics have rest beds and birthing facilities to encourage safe delivery among rural mothers.
