Report
Distance Knowledge Sharing on
Suicide Prevention:
Country Experience from Malaysia
Background
WHO estimates that almost one million deaths
are due to suicide every year, the majority of
which occur in low- and middle-income
countries. Attempted suicide can be up to 20
times more frequent than suicide. As suicide is
among the top three causes of death in the
population aged 15-34 years (second leading
cause for 10-24 year olds) globally, there is a
massive loss to societies of young people. There
is a need for immediate action which includes
public health and cross-sector/inter-agency
approaches.
Goals
To respond to this neglected but important
global priority, WHO launched the first-ever
World Suicide Report in late 2014.
According to the report, Malaysia’s percentage
change in age standardized suicide rates 2000–
2012 is -23.9% for both sexes.
Tokyo Development Learning Center, the World
Bank together with the United Nations University
International Institute for Global Health presents
the distance knowledge sharing seminar to focus
on country case studies, including good practices
and lessons learned.
