What are Yellow Dot Doctors?

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 weary 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.

Wondering if you can get PrEP on your medical aid?

Here are the top 10 medical aids that will cover you for PrEP if you fill in a prescribed minimum benefits form (PMB) and submit it. You can download a PMB form from your medical aid’s website.

  • Gay and single? You’re part of a trend

    “But I don’t wanna die all aloooooone!”, said the devastated queen sitting beside me at a group therapy open circle.

  • A Mental Health Melt Down

    I had an “Aha” moment. But when I say that, I don’t mean I spent thirty seconds listening to “Take on me” created by the gorgeous vintage Scandinavian band of the same name (Aha). No, I mean that I had… The post A Mental Health Melt Down appeared first on We The Brave.
