    An excerpt from the article by The Star Online:

    A study by the International Institute for Global Health of the United Nations University (UNU) estimated that the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang and the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya lines would avert 183 deaths and 9,604 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) every year.

    DALYs is defined as the number of years in productive life lost due to early deaths or disability from disease or injury, according to researchers Prof Jamal Hisham Hashim and Kwan Soo Chen.
