Union Minister Dr Thet Khaing Win chairs the MoHS coordination meeting in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.

The Ministry of Health and Sports held the coordination meeting for the regular operation of nursing and medical support services yesterday morning in Nay Pyi Taw.
At the meeting, Union Minister Dr Thet Khaing Win said people mainly rely on people’s hospitals for healthcare services. The role of nurses and medical professionals in addition to doctors is essential for medical assistance in people’s hospitals. Although hospitals are not functioning correctly now, there are nurses and medical professionals who are on duty and are making efforts to support diagnosis and medical treatment.
The Union Minister also said many patients are affected due to the inability of hospitals to operate regularly. Especially, pregnant women and infants lose their lives due to delay in receiving treatment. He said for the patients with chronic kidney disease, health services such as dialysis should be carried out regularly and urged the trained nurses to continue providing health service professionally for the benefits of patients.
He urged them to rebuild and maintain the unity of the health workers by clarifying the misinformation, which is disseminated among the colleagues at the workplaces, and help those who want to return to work.
The Union Minister added the need to follow the COVID-19 rules and regulations as the new variant virus has been spread. The number of COVID-19 cases has risen again in the world since March 2021.
The meeting was also attended by Deputy Minister U Myo Hlaing, Directors-General and officials from the Union Minister Office, the Department of Medical Service, the Department of Human Resources, Department of Public Health, Chief officer, nursing supervisors and nurses from the people’s hospitals in Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory, and health professionals.
The Union Minister also attended the coordination meeting with the Heads of Public Health and Medical Service Department from Ayeyawady Region, Taninthayi Region, Sagaing Region and Kayin State that are accelerating COVID-19 control and prevention activities, and the National Health Laboratory (Yangon) through video conferencing in the afternoon.
The meeting discussed plans for effective prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 variant through border gates and border crossings and plans to set up efforts to prevent further outbreaks of COVID-19 virus, plans to identify the suspected cases of COVID-19 infection in the community and to accelerate laboratory tests, plans for adequate distribution of medicines and supplies needed for disease prevention and control, and medical treatment to the COVID-19 patient at the public hospitals and to accelerate health education, coordinating programmes for the respective regions/states to obtain sufficient resources for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 disease. — MNA
