ABSTRACT
The authors comment on the research "Prevalence of anxiety among women attending a primary care clinic in Malaysia," by M. S. Sherina and colleagues, which indicates the prevalence of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) among primary care patients. They cite the study's success in bringing the impact of social factors in GAD back to the fore. The general physicians' (GP) role in assessing GAD patients, the guideline for managing GAD, and the screening for partner abuse are also noted.
