A press release dated 30 July revealed that victims who face any form of harassment under the Ministry of Health (MOH) can report their cases to the Health Minister

This comes as several medical trainees shared that they were sexually harassed by the Head of the Orthopedic Department at a hospital in Klang Valley, in an exclusive report by The Star on 29 July, 

Victims felt trapped as the man would threaten to destroy their careers if word leaked out about what was happening.

Following the news, more medical officers have since come out with similar complaints to the MOH through various channels

Bernama reported that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Women, Family, and Community Development Deputy Minister Hannah Yeoh held meetings to discuss the appropriate action to take on the matter.

"I have read the email and the allegations are very serious," Yeoh said previously, adding that a thorough investigation needs to be done urgently, according to The Star on 29 July.
