SASSM Holds First Sexual Medicine Course

The South Asian Society of Sexual Medicine (SASSM) held its first course in Bangladesh in September. The program was well-received, and the society plans to make the course an annual event.

"In the background of social taboos and the lack of evidence based practice by some doctors, we felt the necessity of appropriate knowledge and skill in the field of sexual medicine," wrote SASSM President AKM Anwarul Islam in an ISSM report.

"With this course we do hope to spread the activities of SASSM in this region," he added.

However, the authors noted that the evidence in the studies was "low quality" and that more research is needed.
