/, News/NHS2023 – USIM 9th National Health Seminar

On the 2nd of November 2023, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia proudly hosted the National Health Seminar, a biennial event that has been a cornerstone of academic excellence since 2006. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the committee team and the remarkable winners who contributed to the success of this significant occasion.

The seminar, designed to elevate the standing of FPSK and USIM within the academic community, foster collaboration with diverse stakeholders, and promote knowledge exchange, embraced the theme of sexual health and gender diversity. Addressing topics once considered taboo, the event provided a crucial platform for open dialogue and the dissemination of accurate information.

In a society where discussions on sexual health are gaining importance, the seminar played a pivotal role in bridging gaps in knowledge. By engaging medical professionals, allied health experts, academics, industry representatives, and students, it facilitated an inclusive conversation surrounding sexual health, breaking down barriers and promoting a deeper understanding of healthcare practices.

Emphasizing the profound impact of good sexual health on physical and mental well-being, the seminar underscored the importance of clear and open communication among couples. The dissemination of knowledge and awareness proved instrumental in preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, including syphilis, gonorrhea, and AIDS.

Beyond health concerns, the event contributed to reducing stigma and discrimination against marginalized groups. Contemporary issues such as gender inequality, individual rights, and gender identity were explored from a scientific perspective, fostering an environment of inclusivity and understanding.

Once again, congratulations to the entire committee team for orchestrating a successful and impactful National Health Seminar. Your dedication and hard work have undoubtedly left a lasting impression, furthering the mission of advancing knowledge, fostering collaboration, and promoting open discourse in the field of medicine and health.
