Chong Yeow Siang, the Managing Director of CARiNG Pharmacy, adds that CARiNG pharmacists will play an essential role in the success of this campaign. Pharmacists are often the first point of contact for those interested in family planning or contraception.

CARiNG is the largest pharmacy chain in Malaysia, with many of our outlets strategically located in high traffic areas such as shopping malls. Many outlets operate 12 hours a day, seven days a week. As a result, our pharmacists are very accessible to many Malaysians who need advice and clarification on the use of modern contraceptives.
