- For the beginning, this collaboration is to gather and build rapport among AHS Students in Malaysia. There are three program were suggested which are Students Health Convention, National Health Quiz, and Games Carnival inter AHS faculty. After long discussion, we have concluded that convention and Quiz are academic based program and need some specialization to be conducted. Meanwhile Games Carnival is social based program and more suitable and combine similarities among various discipline in Allied Health Science. Insyaallah, USM will organize Inter AHS faculty Games Carnival in semester 2 and some of students from IIUM will involved as support committee for this carnival. The technical and operation part will be handled by USM and further discussion will be informed to us later.

e) Link and medium for connection among AHS students.
