HIV Awareness Health Talk
Some people say you can contract HIV by shaking hands with a person who is HIV Positive. Some believe that HIV is 'a homosexual disease'. These are just some of the common misconceptions of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
We say enough fearing the unknown! Join us as we get into the facts and commonly asked questions. We are proud to be collaborating with University Malaya Medical Center (UMMC) to bring to you a much needed HIV Awareness health talk! In conjunction with World Aids Day (Dec 1st) and Aids Awareness Month, we're getting together to spread awareness and empowerment instead of misunderstanding and fear.
Learn what HIV is as a virus, how it spreads, and how it is treated and controlled, from medical specialist, Dr Ng Rong Xiang of UMMC, an expert in Internal Medicine. Take this chance to see how you can contribute to the eradication of the disease and the stigma surrounding those affected by it!
Our speaker, Dr Ng Rong Xiang, is an Internal Medicine Specialist from University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).
He completed his MBBS in 2011, and he went on to become a member of the Royal Colleges of Phyiscians of The United Kingdome (MRCP(UK)) in 2016 and completed his Masters in Internal Medicine at University Malaya in 2018. He is passionate about HIV Medicine, having written his thesis on The Association of Syndemic Phenomenon with Condomless Anal Intercourse (CAI) and HIV Infection among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Malaysia. He aims to develop a comprehensive and novel approach to reducing HIV transmission in Malaysia, and is working towards eradicating AIDS by 2030.
