Who is Rajakumar?

The late Dr Rajakumar was a highly regarded, well respected Wonca elder.  Rajakumar was a Wonca World President and a respected leader of family medicine in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific Region.

According to Datuk Dr Daniel Thuraiapah, a lifelong friend and colleague of Rajakumar ‘the man who has devoted his entire life to the development and betterment of the general practitioner by promoting the discipline of family medicine through education ... he continues to inspire us .... the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson are apt to describe him as follows: to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  That is to have succeeded... it is hoped that everyone will benefit from his faith, his hope and his charity for the world’.

Dr Rajakumar is an exemplary role model for all in our region – especially those of us just commencing our journey through the jungle of family medicine.
