  1. Hi, Hayati here from Malaysia,
    got a few questions: for the general questions: has there been a change in regulations or laws within the past 5 years that has improved the opioid availability? I felt there is no need for changes at this point of time as the laws is allowing the relevent doctors to prescribe opioid.. however, in the data somehow it been reflecting a negative aspect of Malaysian authority…probably need some changes in the subheading???

    2.Q2 drug availability: the cost mention here is mainly reflecting the public sector/hospital which the cost of monthly supply of all medications range from RM5-20 (1.5-4 USD) permonth so hopefully I have reflect the actual scenerio here. In private sector… patient have to pay full amount.
    3. subheading for actual availability of opioid when needed may need to be very clear to reflect the actual things the questions is trying to potray ( can patient get it when they need it…)

    Thank you,
    Hayati Yaakup
