The Malaysia National Poison Centre (NPC) based in Universiti Sains Malaysia was established in 1994 as a consultation centre for drug and poison information and poisoning management. In 1998, it earned an additional role as the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Drug Information (Western-Pacific Region) for its services and contribution in the arena of health. In 2001, another function was added to the NPC when it was commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation, New York, to set up a Clearinghouse for Tobacco Control (C-Tob) to support tobacco-control activities in the Southeast Asia region.
