The National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) is Malaysia's national health survey and was first carried out in 1986. The main objective of NHMS 2019 was to provide community-based data and evidence to Ministry of Health Malaysia on Non-Communicable Disease (NCD), NCD risk factors and healthcare demand for review of national health priorities and programs. NHMS 2019 was a cross sectional survey, using complex study design with two stage stratified cluster sampling. A total of 26 houses (12 for NCD questionnaire and 14 for healthcare demand questionnaire) were selected from each cluster. The survey involved all states and federal territories in Malaysia, to produce nationally representative data. Face-to-face interview was carried out by trained research assistants, together with structured self-administered questionnaires, clinical and anthropometric measurements as well as point-of-care finger prick blood test. A total of 14,965 individuals (response rate - 87.2%) participated in the NCD portion, meanwhile 16,688 individuals (response rate - 83.4%) answered the healthcare demand portion.
