We Care For You (Genetic)

Health Accessibility Campaign

Pregnant with the first child is often the most exciting news for couples who want children. At this point, many common worries begin to creep into the minds of mothers and fathers.

Parents are encouraged to undergo a thorough health examination to identify the risk of diseases that the child may inherit later.

According to Consultant Obstetrician & Gynecologist, Dr Patricia Lim Su-Lyn, pregnancy is not just about fetal growth, changes in the mother’s physiology and the chances of having children.

It goes beyond many phases and risks, depending on the background of the couple in question.

Just like its name, Penyakit Jarang Jumpa (PJJ), the awareness of Malaysians on the ‘rare’ diseases suffered by individuals around them is still low, thus causing patients to fail to get proper treatment.

In fact, Pediatrician and Fellow of the United Kingdom College of Pediatrics and Child Health (FRCPCH UK), Professor Dr Zabidi Hussin revealed, there are only four hospitals in the country that offer PJJ specialized services with 13 specialist doctors.

PJJ refers to a disease that affects 1 in 4,000 people in the community, but in reality the ratio is even greater. According to Zabidi, in Malaysia it is estimated that there are almost 1,300 types of PJJ.
