In Malta, there is little or no importance given to sexual health and safe access to contraception. It is not a part of our culture to get tested regularly which results in undiagnosed infections that may cause serious harm and can be spread unknowingly. Our GU clinic, whilst effective is heavily understaffed and requires more investment to ensure that people who cannot afford to visit a private clinic are taking the necessary precautions. People should also be able to receive free contraception which may help with the rate of low income individuals having more children, and should also reduce the demand for unsafe abortions.
