In conjunction with World Sexual Health Month 2021, MUC Healthcare is hosting FLIRT 2.0 Let's Get Tested until 15 October
Together with non-profit organisations (NGO) like the Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) and the Kuala Lumpur AIDS Support Services Society (KLASS), this virtual event is all about encouraging everyone to get tested for HIV, which remains one of the rising sexual health infections in Malaysia.
To support the NGOs' cause in HIV-related agendas, this virtual charity programme also aims to donate the funds raised from purchases of the HIV Screening Package to MAF and KLASS.

If you're anxious about performing the HIV self-test on your own, worry not! For every purchase of the HIV Screening Package, you will be provided a link to a private and confidential Zoom Webinar, with doctors guiding you through the correct way to conduct the HIV self-test. :D
The webinar session is hosted by sexual health practitioner Dr Ray from MUC Healthcare, HIV Advocated Outreach Worker Faiz Jamaluddin, and Azryn Azhari Arshad, also known as Kakak Kondom
With sex still being a taboo topic in society, Dr Ray believes that it's time to speak louder about it and discuss the topic openly.
"In my line of work, I see patients that are afraid to find out their status and with that, many keep on having unprotected sex and further spread STDs. This feeling of shame needs to be erased, and sexuality in all forms needs to be talked about. All STDs can be treated, so let's treat it before it deteriorates and further affects the well-being of Malaysians. Only then can we achieve a healthy, sex-positive society," Dr Ray said.
During the webinar, Dr Ray will guide the participants step-by-step on how they can conduct their own HIV self-test. You can even ask the speakers any sexual health-related questions during the Q&A session! If you prefer to remain anonymous, feel free to use a nickname :)
PS: Once the webinar is over, don't forget to to claim your free one-on-one telehealth sessions on sexual and mental health, powered by Sihatku
You can arrange for the date and timing of your two sessions privately with the doctors from MUC Healthcare.
