According to the Malay Mail, health director-general, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah explained that the proposal to ban smoking will apply to both public and private tertiary education institutions.

He was quoted by NST as saying,

“We have done it with Parliament and eateries, and now perhaps we will extend it to universities. We are planning to gazette it at all universities, be it public or private universities, probably within this year (2019).”

The health director-general revealed this news to the reporters after he attended the Pharmaceutical Association of Malaysia (PhAMA) Industry Fact Book: 2018 Edition book launch.

FYI, health minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad was also present during the event to launch the fact book. PhAMA president Chin Keat Chyuan attended the event too.

Back in 2015, several private universities including Sunway University, KDU University and INTI International College had banned all kinds of smoking on their grounds. This includes all forms of smoking such as cigarettes, e-cigarettes, pipes and “other smoking utensils”.
