Internationally and regionally, she was appointed as Co-chairperson of the WHO Global and Western-Pacific Region Strategic and Technical Advisory Committee for Viral Hepatitis, Executive Council Member of the Asian-Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver, Executive Council Member of the Coalition to Eradicate Viral Hepatitis in Asia Pacific since 2010, Council Member of International Coalition of Hepatology Education Providers since 2013, and committee member of the Chronic Hepatitis B Guideline Working Party of the Asian-Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver since 2008.

Her vast knowledge in hepatitis is widely acknowledged and was quoted on low hepatitis awareness in Daily Express. She is deeply committed to undertaking research work on liver disease and has numerous publications to date. One of her most recent publications is chronic viral hepatitis in Malaysia: “Where are we now?” which was published on Eurasian Journal of HepatoGastroenterology. This is in line with her view on Malaysia having low awareness on hepatitis “As a clinician, I think that we simply don’t have enough awareness and that’s why HCV diagnosis is estimated to be extremely low”.
