A medical mobile team has provided free medical treatment to over 5,000 people so far, including care for contagious and infectious diseases, to villagers in Buthidaung Township, Rakhine State, according to a medical official.
“I am a doctor from Taungbazar station. Now I have been assigned to Buthidaung Hospital.
There are a total of six mobile teams including one in Zaytipyin Village. Since 14 July, the six mobile teams have provided medical treatment to 5,529 patients in the villages”, said Dr. Saw Min Thein. The mobile teams provide free medical treatment to the villagers 20 days a month. The mobile teams will continue toprovide medical treatment over the next six or seven months with the use of Union budget funding.
The areas of Buthidaung and Maungtaw that were affected by terrorist attacks faced difficulties in re-opening the clinics and hospitals in the region.
The mobile teams will provide medical treatment in the villages until the clinics and hospitals are fully operational.—Myint Maung / Zayar
