Specialist medical teams comprising professors and physicians from Yangon, Mandalay, and Nay Pyi Taw are extending medical services in various states and regions across Myanmar.
On 27 and 28 January, reports indicate that these specialist teams, led by professors and physicians from General Hospitals in North Oakkalapa and Thingangyun townships, along with professionals from the 550-bed Yangon Children’s Hospital, travelled to Mawlamyine in Mon State for the second time to provide medical treatment to local residents.
During this outreach, a total of 1,512 patients received treatment, including individuals from ten townships in Mon State and three townships in Kayin State. The medical conditions treated ranged from cardiac diseases, gastrointestinal issues, and neurological ailments to orthopaedic and dermatological problems, among others.
Additionally, medical check-ups included procedures such as Echocardiography, Oesophago-Gastro-Duodenoscopy (OGD) Scope, Colonoscopy, CT scans, glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) tests, X-ray examinations, laboratory tests, ultrasound scans, and electrocardiograms (ECG). Some patients requiring further treatment were referred to Yangon General Hospital.
Chief Minister of Mon State U Aung Kyi Thein and other officials visited the patients, delivered speeches, and provided nutritional support during the medical mission. Furthermore, Deputy Director-General Dr Thida Aung of the National Blood Centre conducted a session on blood transfusion and safety at the Department of Public Health of Mon State on the evening of 28 January.
This initiative marks the 15 field medical trips by specialist medical teams in 2023. In 2024, similar efforts have been undertaken in Taunggyi, Pyay, Thandwe, Pathein, and now in Mawlamyine, with plans for continuous implementation in the future. — MNA/TRKM
