The government through the Ministry of Health has established a Foreign Workers Health Screening Programme since 1967. It has several objectives, which include among others, the early detection of disease in foreign workers, minimising risk of disease transmission/ importation to the local population and to ensure that the foreign workers are medically fit to be employed in Brunei.
One of the procedures they need to go through is a chest X-Ray. Dahlia X-Ray Services, with its state-of-the-art eco-friendly X-Ray machine, to be operated by a well-experienced X-ray technician, is now ready to provide such service to employers.
