VICE PRESIDENT Dr Sai Mauk Kham attended the 16th annual conference of the Myanmar Medical Association in Taunggyi, Shan State, yesterday.
In his speech, the vice president called on those present to discuss what must be done to develop quality standards for healthcare services and to exchange views on ways and means for addressing the latest challenges in the medical field. The vice president stressed the need to train more doctors, as there are only 35,000 medical paractitioners across the country, in which the rural population accounts for 70 per cent of the total. If almost every village has a health care staff each in the country’s more than 64,000 villages, health care service would be better, he added.
The vice president also visited University of Medicine in Taunggyi, where he met faculty members and medical students. During his tour, Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham also inspected Aye Thaya Public Housing in Aye Thaya Township.—Myanmar News Agency
