THE Ministry of Health has installed a cardiac catheterisation laboratory and a neonatal intensive care unit within the Yankin Children’s Hospital in Yangon to better facilitate child health care and ultimately save lives, according to Union Minister Dr Than Aung.
Speaking on the occasion of the official announcement the union minister said that the installation of modern medical devices at the 500-bed hospital yesterday was part of the government’s commitment to reducing the maternal and child mortality rate in Myanmar and particularly in Yangon, the nation’s most populous city, in line with the United Nations’ millennium development goals. The country currently still experiences a high mortality rate during the neonatal period and in areas related to pregnancy compared to the Asia region and the world at large.
Financed by the government, the cardiac catheterisation laboratory and the neonatal intensive care unit will now be able to provide advanced health care to infants in need. After the opening ceremony Dr Than Aung toured the neonatal intensive care unit and inspected medical staff giving essential treatment to newborns.
