Introduction

The Health Department of the Klang Municipal Council was established in 1890. This department has been in existence for more than a century and was among the first departments that was set up which included the Administration Department, The engineering Department and The Financial Department.

During the early period of its inception, the Health Department consisted of the Public Health Division, the Park & Town Beautification Division, the Municipality Services Division and the Licensing Division.

 

With the increase in area under the Council and the responsibility together with the higher demands of the local population, the Council had made the decision to exclude the Park & Town Beautification Division, the Municipality Services Division and the Licensing Division from the Health Department by establishing other new departments as follows: -

  • The Park & Town Beautification Division to be known as the Park & Recreation Department
  • The Municipality Services Division to be known as the Environment Control Department
  • The Licensing Division to be known as the Licensing and Hawkers Department

There are 6 main divisions under the Health Department :

  • Administrative Division
  • Vector & Infectious Diseases Division
  • Food Safety & Quality Division
  • Public Health Division
  • Health Education & Promotion Division
  • Clinics Division
