WHAT IS A YELLOW DOT DOCTOR?

Yellow Dot Doctors are medical professionals within the Private Sector who are sensitised to sexual health needs of men who have sex with men (MSM).

If you’re a man who has sex with other men you can have a professional consultation with a Yellow Dot Doctor. You will not have to be wary of being judged and can feel assured that you will be treated with respect and dignity by a professional who understands some of the challenges that life can throw at you.

The Anova Health Institute ensures sensitisation by providing practical guidelines for communicating with MSM patients on responsible sexual behaviour and HIV prevention and other health factors that are pertinent to men. These medical professionals are then listed on the Yellow Dot Doctor website where you can find the nearest one to you.

Dr Marc de Villiers

As a gay teenager, then a medical student and even when I was a young doctor, my sexuality and lifestyle was frowned upon. I am so glad that we have come such a long way since then. I love being able to assist young and old members of the LGBT+ community. I am so privileged to be able to be the understanding medical person that I always wanted/needed to talk to in my youth.
