Geng Sihat Sihat Selalu, 29 May 2016, Causeway Point.
In our thrust towards more targeted prevention initiatives, NKF aired a 13-episode Malay docu-drama SIMPTOM from 2 March 2016 until 1 June 2016 on Suria to raise awareness on kidney failure, its leading causes and the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. The series, hosted by local celebrity Taufik Batisah, is in collaboration with Geng Sihat SG, a movement started by the community to empower the Malay community to take charge of their health. The docu-drama series culminated with our event Geng Sihat, Sihat Selalu to further engage the community to care for their health and look out for their symptoms.

No matter how busy you are, taking care of your health must be given primary importance because if you don't, it will weigh heavily on you and your family.
