Doctor in the House: Men or Women - Who Bears the Responsibility for Family Planning?

It was recently reported that a Malaysian gynaecologist had created the “world’s first unisex condom”, which would make what is traditionally a male contraception also usable for women. But what does this tell us about who bears greater responsibility for family planning? Why should reproductive health be women and men’s shared responsibility? Consultant obstetrician & gynaecologist Dr Premitha Damodaran and consultant urologist Dr George Lee weigh in.
