HSM Created A Seminar To Build Awareness of Bleeding Disorders

The Hemophilia Society of Malaysia (HSM) held the ‘CREATING AWARENESS AND EMPOWERING WOMEN & GIRLS WITH INHERITED BLEEDING DISORDERS’ webinar on 30 October 2021.

The seminar is held in order to build awareness of inherited bleeding disorders and empower the female community that suffers from them.

Image 01

Joining in to support this movement was Dr. Kuldip Kaur A/P Prem Singh, Director of Sungai Buloh Hospital, along with other local medical experts to maximize the impact of this campaign.

“As we move forward, I believe it is important for people to be well informed on the subject of bleeding disorders, so that women who have inherited it need not feel ashamed of their condition; with campaigns such as this, we can change what is considered taboo to be normal.”

Most bleeding disorders are inherited and passed down through genetics and affect the clotting of blood that results in excessive bleeding both inside and outside the body. The inability to form blood clots can be dangerous, and they lead to easy bruising, frequent nosebleeds, heavy menstrual bleeding, and excessive bleeding from minor cuts. Hemophilia and Von Willebrand disease (VWD) are the most common inherited bleeding disorders.

Girls that have inherited these disorders face some complications when they come of age and start menstruating. These women experience menorrhagia during their menstruation, causing them to bleed excessively for more than seven days. Though every individual is different, to give a rough understanding of the volume of blood lost during their menstruation period – women with these disorders would typically bleed the equivalent of what a regular person would in seven days, during their first and second day.Image 03

Edwin Goh, President of the Hemophilia Society of Malaysia (HSM), said,

Bleeding disorders have been male-centric due to the predominance of hemophilia in men. Because of this, the troubles and voices of the minority female population are disregarded. We need to work collectively to embrace these women, and show them they are accepted in our society, and that there is nothing to be ashamed about.”

At the press conference, Mdm. Kim Chew, Hemophilia A Carrier, Von Willebrand Disease (VWD) patient and Pn. Norhana Hussain, Hemophilia B Carrier Factor 9 Deficiency Patient, expressed that it is especially difficult for younger girls that are just beginning to get their period as they often find blood leaking through their clothes. Embarrassed and traumatized from this, most of them usually lock themselves up at home to avoid any contact with people. The trauma and routine is carried on towards their adult lives.

Hence, the ‘CREATING AWARENESS AND EMPOWERING WOMEN & GIRLS WITH INHERITED
BLEEDING DISORDERS’ campaign was established to encourage the female population with inherited bleeding disorders to accept their condition openly, and keep the public well informed so that they do not be too quick to criticize or judge when encountering such situations.

Sponsors – McMillan Woods Global, Novo Nordisk, TDOX Clinic, and Onecare Wellness were quick to jump in this movement and be exemplary role models as they stand alongside women with bleeding disorders.

The webinar was hosted by Dr. Choo Mei Sze, Youth Ambassador of the National Cancer Society of Malaysia. Local medical experts that supported the virtual event and gave empowering keynote sessions include:
⦁ Women’s Group Advisor – Dr. Jameela Sathar, Senior Consultant Hematologist at Ampang Hospital
⦁ Dr. Veena Selvaratnam, Hematologist at Ampang Hospital
⦁ Dr. Lavitha Sivapatham, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist at Ampang Hospital
⦁ Pn. Suzanah Abd Hamid, Psychology Officer at Sabah Women & Children Hospital Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

PG MALL Ranked the 3rd Most Visited Marketplace Online

Within a short span of 3 years, PG Mall, the homegrown online marketplace founded by Public Gold Group (commonly known as PG Group), has impressively ranked 3rd most visited online marketplace among other foreign-owned online marketplaces in Malaysia, by iPrice Insights with a total monthly site visit of 1,688,500 visitors as of its Q1 2020 report.

unnamed

Established in 2017, PG Mall is the brainchild of PG Group Founder and Executive Chairman, Dato’ Wira Louis Ng Chun Hau, who aspires to grow and push homegrown brands to global frontier under a unique Sharing Economy business model. In view of the evolution of internet over the last decade and rapid growth in eCommerce in the recent years, Public Gold which specializes in physical gold and silver bullions trading, equipped with online trading facilities since 12 years ago, saw an opportunity to diversify its gold & silver products, to venture into consumer goods trading under PG Mall Sdn. Bhd.

PG Mall’s strength as a newly founded local eCommerce site is in its shared customer base with Public Gold that has more than 1,000,000 customers (and still growing) across South East Asia (SEA). As part of its preliminary marketing goals, PG Mall aims to bridge its local merchants to regional SEA markets, followed by global venture in the near future to boost and accelerate the local economy.

Despite it being a fairly new player in the industry, PG Mall saw an impressive revenue growth in its initial startup years, and true enough, within just a short span of 3 years since its establishment, it has won over a substantial market share to compete with bigger and long-established international players within the ecommerce industry.

According to the Managing Director of PG Mall Sdn. Bhd., Dato’ Wira Louis Ng,

“We are thrilled by the recent ranking on iPrice. Based on iPrice’s 2019 third quarter report, we were ranked Top 5 for the highest monthly web visit among other international players of similar kind, and to be able to get onto the third position in just 6 months with an impressive increase of 812,400 total web visits, to 1,688,500 total web visits is definitely mind-blowing, especially for a homegrown brand like ours, which makes us the No.1 local eCommerce site in Malaysia. No doubt that we are now officially a serious market contender and will continue to aggressively grow to top the chart.”

From a mere RM500,000 revenue recorded in 2017, PG Mall’s revenue expanded 10 folds in the following year to RM5 million in 2018. With the exceptional growth seen to date, PG Mall is set to reach a targeted revenue of RM100 million by year end.

PG Mall’s rapid growth is made possible through an aggressive marketing strategy that relies heavily on shoppers to grow its merchant and customer base under its very own unique business concept known as ConsuMerchant.

The ConsuMerchant concept is basically a profit sharing plan developed to benefit PG Mall shoppers by rewarding them with cash back ranging from 0.5% up to 3.5% on every successful transaction made.

For every successful transaction made by the referred shoppers, the introducers will also receive cash back of 0.5% per transaction, up to a maximum of 3.5%.

This business model aims to help create a healthy and balanced economy business ecosystem by giving everyone an opportunity to earn legitimate incomes and build a permanent business empire with PG Mall. The brand believes shoppers are the value creators for the whole economy chain, for every goods must have a buyer in order for it (goods) to be valuable within the supply and demand economy ecosystem.

“Our business model enables anyone at any age, to own a business empire through referral under our ConsuMerchant concept and drop shipping method, without needing to master any business skills. Mostly we want to revolutionise shopping through our ‘Shop, Share and Earn’ mechanism. In general, people shop to buy things they need or desire and while they Shop we reward them with cash back of 0.5% per transaction. And if they enjoy shopping with us, we encourage them to Share their wonderful shopping experience with family and friends, and reward them further with more cash back up to 3.5%. The more they shop and refer, the more cash back they will Earn. It’s that simple,” explained Dato’ Wira Louis.

To enhance its shipping facilities, PG Mall has collaborated with Pos Malaysia Bhd’s courier arm, Pos Laju under a strategic partnership, as the main logistic partner in the region. This enables PG Mall to reach out to millions of online shoppers in urban areas through Pos Malaysia’s 700 outlets nationwide.

Apart from Pos Laju, PG Mall also partners with many other renowned courier service providers such as DHL, GDEX, Skynet, ABX Express, J&T Express, Easy Parcel, Pgeon, The Lorry and CJ Century for the betterment of the logistic industry because PG Mall believes that the logistic industry in Malaysia is growing in tandem with eCommerce and getting more competitive by the day. Therefore, they deserve the support from eCommerce company like PG Mall to grow hand in hand to reach its full potential.

Not just that, PG Mall has collaborated with iPrice Group, Selluseller, and Involve Asia Technologies to adapt to the increasing demands of modern-day shoppers. Through these collaborations, they are able to share their marketing expertise with PG Mall. Also, for market expansion, PG Mall partners with leading telecommunication companies in Malaysia such as Maxis, Celcom and redOne to reach out to wider market.

“They may target Green Packet Bhd and XOX Bhd. XOX  is the cheapest telco stock on Bursa Malaysia and are now one of the fastest growing telcos in Malaysia,” said industry sources with knowledge on the matter.

For information, XOX has about RM35 million cash on hand and currently offers the most competitive and innovative 4G data plan. It is focusing to build 5G infrastructure in the region.

This 5G technology has many to offers and some are:

  • to transform the landscape of telecoms as it promises faster download speeds and high network reliability
  • will open opportunities for new services, network operation and improved customer experience
  • providers will be able to increase both download speeds and monthly data capacity on unlimited plans
  • The transition to 5G is expected to generate a windfall for network, infrastructure, and equipment vendors

Three months ago XOX partnered with Advance Tech Communication Sdn Bhd (ATC) to launch 4G and 5G smartphones, with additional satellite communication capabilities termed XPLORE.

Therefore, XOX will be the FIRST MALAYSIAN telco to market and distribute the products to its users across Southeast Asia.

The smartphone, equipped with satellite connectivity and digital mobile radio, will be launched by ATC to XOX users. It is said that  XOX’s Executive Director Steve Tan has mentioned that the company aims to provide a unified network plan by integrating XOX’s prepaid plans and messaging platform with ATC’s extensive satellite emergency services. However, Tan was not available for comment at press time.

“XOX is quite strong as a company. It implemented the right marketing strategy as well as innovation ideas and products to see it through the current Covid-19 pandemic and drive the company forward. The success factor for XOX is built by leveraging on the brand, distribution channel with a solid growth of customer base,” said a source close to XOX.

Analysts believe telco stocks will rally as the sector is making handsome profits, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

XOX is ranked FIFTH in the telco sector and is the Number ONE  MVNO company in Malaysia with current customer base almost reaching three million, including prepaid and post paid mobile phone users.

Last month XOX inked an agreement with DGB Asia Bhd to collaborate in the deployment of up to 1,000 next generation AI vending machines. This move is in line with XOX’s strategy to focus on different silos of its business to build up its revenue streams.

Valuations of telcos in Malaysia are becoming attractive again and the sector is expected to grow at an accelerated rate with the current shifts happening in digital landscapes such as 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).
