I finally received the NUS Bia-Echo Asia Centre for Reproductive Longevity & Equality (ACRLE) video record of my presentation. It was a huge relief to be able to complete the presentation despite having a fever.
E for Endometriosis had the opportunity to speak to an audience of researchers, social scientists, public health experts, policymakers, clinicians, nurses, students, and advocates in women’s health, reproductive biology, reproductive rights, and equality last September. This is in conjunction with the inaugural conference 2022- the Science and Art of Reproductive Ageing organized by the NUS Bia-Echo Asia Centre for Reproductive Longevity & Equality (ACRLE). This was a closed conference (by registration only).
In this symposium, I voiced out the challenges surrounding Endometriosis; the lack of awareness, (be it among the public or professionals) & proper care management. I also suggested promoting pelvic screening on a large scale on par with the ongoing Screen for Life (SFL) program, which is a national screening promotion by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) that offers the screening at a subsidized rate of SGD5 or less (depending on the eligibility criteria) to elevate Endometriosis awareness.

I hope that vocalizing these issues to the group of people who have the authority to mold the laws of the country would consider addressing and bringing these concerns to attention. I also understand that Rome was not built in a day. At least the issues would finally be heard in such a vast setting.
I am hoping to hear this abstract advance to the next phase with governmental support.
Let’s stay hopeful!
