Allied Health Profession Act 2016

An Act to provide for the establishment of the Malaysian Allied Health Professions Council, the registration of the allied health practitioners, the regulation and control of the practice of the allied health professions and for related matters.

Why is the AHP Act enacted?

Though the reason is not stated in the Act but primarily it is to protect:-

  • the profession from a person who is unqualified to practice  and whose  action will be detrimental to the profession’s dignity.
  • the public from unqualified and bogus practitioner and abuse of knowledge and unprofessional conduct by legitimate practitioner.
  • the health & medical industry by improving and raising the standard of the profession and the service delivery.
