A free clinic backed by the UN refugee agency ? the first of its kind ? recently drew over 300 women at a community center in Kuala Lumpur. Most of those attending the half-day clinic, which was organized by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and funded by the private Obstetrical and Gynecological Society of Malaysia and the IS Puvan OBGYN Foundation, were refugee women. The clinic offered services such as pap smears, breast examinations, blood glucose and blood pressure tests, HIV testing, counseling and referrals. (UN News Service)
