Union Minister for Health and Sports Dr. Myint Htwe held a meeting with the heads of state and region health departments in PyinOoLwin on 9 and 10 June to discuss swifter healthcare services and promotion of multi-level sector-wise interactions.
During the meeting, the union minister encouraged the participants to discuss any difficulties or restrictions they may face in their work and asked them to share their opinions and advice.
He explained the main purpose of the meeting was to discuss the delegation of more authority to state and region departments concerning their administration, management, staff affairs and finance.
The union minister said the state and region health departments are extensions of the ministry and thus require more support and aid to effectively carry out their tasks.
The ministry will promote health education and update school health and regulations, will remove obsolete practices, promote relations between healthcare providers and patients and their families, open people-centered clinics, eradicate non-infectious diseases, open mobile medical units with basic healthcare providers, and reform the state and region healthcare training teams.
This was followed by officials explaining their policies, progress reports, staff affairs, management, finance, and the establishment processes. —Myanmar News Agency
