Doctor in the House: Tackling Taboos on STIs

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. In conjunction with World Sexual Health Day which falls on 4th September every year, we take a look at how we’re doing in managing sexually transmitted infections. STIs remain a taboo subject in our society and the surrounding stigma can prevent early detection and treatment of these diseases. On today’s show, we speak to consultant urologist Dr George Lee and Assoc Prof Dr Raja Iskandar Shah Raja Azwa from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Malaya to find out how we can break these taboos and tackle the issues surrounding STIs in Malaysia.
