FOMEMA Sdn. Bhd. was awarded a concession in 1997 by the Government of Malaysia to implement, manage and supervise a nationwide mandatory health screening programme for all legal foreign workers in Malaysia.
The objectives of the concession are to ensure that foreign workers in Malaysia are free of an identified list of communicable diseases and to ensure that Malaysia’s public health facilities are not burdened by unhealthy foreign workers with medical conditions or diseases that require prolonged and extensive treatment.
Unitab Medic Sdn. Bhd. (formerly known as Pantai FOMEMA & Systems Sdn. Bhd.) is the operator of the mandatory health screening system for foreign workers in Malaysia.
