The Sexual Health Enquiry - Good on diagnosis but offers an ineffective Prescription (triple helix - Summer 2003)

On Wednesday 11 June 2003 the much leaked in advance House of Commons Health Committee Report on Sexual Health[1] was published. Having been one of just two GPs who gave oral evidence to the Committee, I was not surprised at its findings. David Hinchliffe the Labour chair of the committee...

Abstinence education (triple helix - spring 2003)

'Why are we not being told the truth?' asks Trevor Stammers If a lie is repeated loudly enough and often enough, it is not surprising that many people who ought to know better will believe it. I was surprised though, that the Chief Medical Officer did not check the...

The Condom Controversy - Safe Sex or Russian Roulette? (triple helix - summer 2002)

My London medical practice has seen a huge rise in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) over the past few years. Genitourinary medicine clinics are struggling with the increasing workload and the Medical Society for the Study of Venereal Diseases is promoting training courses to help GPs cope. Despite well-funded Government initiatives,...

Family Planning Services are Ineffective - But When Will Those Responsible Admit it? (triple helix - summer 2002)

'Teen sex advice ineffective.' The BBC News website [1] could not report it without using inverted commas. Anne Weyman, the Chief Executive of the Family Planning Association, blustered about it on the Today programme with noticeably less self-confidence than usual. However, The Observer, which normally avoids covering such news altogether,...

The Government's Sexual Health Strategy - More of the Same (triple helix - winter 2002)

Backed with £47.5 million, the long awaited government's first National Strategy for Sexual Health and HIV Services [1] was launched on 27 July 2001 by the Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Sheila Adam and GUM consultant, Prof Michael Adler. The launch was timed to coincide with the release of the...

Sex, Lies & Cigarettes (triple helix - summer 2001)

Tasteful. Sensitive. Beautiful. That's what the creators of the recent gay advertising campaign say about their posters. On one level I'm inclined to agree with them. The image accompanying the slogan 'Thank God for men', could easily be of two brothers embracing each other. I certainly don't find it offensive...

Abstinence - the Best Policy? (nucleus - summer 2001)

Recent trends in adolescent sexual health in the United Kingdom are cause for concern. In England alone, almost 90,000 teenagers became pregnant in 1997. Slightly fewer than 7,700 of these girls were less than 16 years old, and about half had abortions.[1] In 1995-7, the rate of increase in gonorrhoea...

Virginity - Government's rediscovery of its value is welcome (triple helix - winter 2001)

It's official! '£60m MESSAGE: VIRGINS ARE OK' proclaimed the Evening Standard recently, reporting on the Government's latest advertising offensive to try and reduce the number of teenage pregnancies in Britain (which currently exceeds 90,000 per annum). 'There is nothing embarrassing about being a virgin' one sixteen year-old claimed in the...

Far from 'Philadelphia' (triple helix - summer 2000)

In perhaps the most moving scene in the film Philadelphia, Tom Hanks as Andrew Becket, a lawyer wrongfully dismissed from his job because he has AIDS, is in his flat discussing his case with his defence counsel, Joe. An opera is quietly playing in the background. Becket, suddenly caught up...

Head to Head: Homosexuality (nucleus - autumn 1999)

Trevor Stammers argues both that 'the health risks of homosexual practice are higher than heterosexual practice' and that 'homosexuality and paedophilia are linked'. He reminds us that most HIV in the UK is acquired through gay sex, and that gay people are over-represented among paedophiles. However, worldwide most HIV is...
