The opening ceremony of the 5th Myanmar Cardiac Society Conference was held at the Lotte Hotel in Yangon yesterday morning. At the ceremony, Union Minister Dr. Myint Htwe said the conference was an opportunity for young doctors from Myanmar to share and learn from the experiences of local and foreign cardiologists as the forum will cover a wide range of matters in the field of cardiovascular medicine, which, as everyone is aware, has seen wide ranging and rapid advances. “The most important point is to view and conduct the forum from the standpoint of public health. The public health sector needs to strategically support treatment to reduce problems related to cardiac health. Only when the public health sector and the treatment sector have discussed and agreed upon a framework of processes, and experts from both sectors work closely and enthusiastically can there be success in reducing the incidence of cardiovascular disease,” said the Union Minister.
The theme of the conference ‘Marching towards Comprehensive Heart Health’ is a meaningful one, and it must be implemented and not forgotten once the conference is over, he added.
“Let us strive to put an end to the saying that cardiovascular disease is the most widely occurring health problem, with the highest rate of hospitalization, and is the leading cause of death in Myanmar,” said the Union Minister. Afterwards, Myanmar Medical Association (MMA) Vice President Prof. Dr. Aye Aung and Prof. Dr. Win Win Kyaw delivered opening addresses, and the chairman of the organizing committee of the conference, Prof. Dr. Nwe Nwe, gave words of thanks.
Then, the Union Minister, MMA Vice President Prof. Dr. Aye Aung, and Prof. Dr. U Aung cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the conference and exhibition.
Thereafter, the Union Minister and his team observed the cardiac medical papers and exhibits on display. The conference will be held for two days on 2 and 3 March, with 28 experts from Singapore, Malaysia, Viet Nam, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Brunei, the Philippines, Italy, UK, Korea, Australia, Japan, Bangladesh, and host Myanmar conducting talks and discussions.—MNA
