Andrology Australia commissioned the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) to promote reproductive health to the Chinese and Vietnamese General Practitioners (GPs) in NSW by organising workshops. Professor Rob McLachlan, Director of Andrology Australia based at Monash University in Melbourne and Principal Research Fellow at Prince Henry Institute, in company with Dr Carol Holden the Chief Executive Officer of Andrology Australia, presented workshops for GPs who were members of the Australian Chinese Medical Association (ACMA) and the Vietnamese-Australian Medical Association (VMA) in March 2012.

Both of these workshops were designed to raise awareness and to present to the general practitioners from both the ACMA and the VMA, the latest medical research on the issues of men’s reproductive health concerns such as: testicular cancer; prostate disease, erectile dysfunction; male infertility and androgen deficiency. Professor McLachlan also discussed the issue of early detection of prostate cancer in general practice with this form of cancer on the rise in the male population in Australia.
