Dr. Khant visit Mrs.D struggling with hypertension
Dr. Khant visit Mrs.D struggling with hypertension

Today we want to share with you the story of Mrs. D. who suffers from many years of hypertension that prevents her to be able to work and to pay for her medical care. She lives 10 km far from Kawthaung and helps the community cooking for kids when parents are away from work.

Like many chronic diseases, hypertension is a very insidious illness to live with because is impossible to solve completely. Instead, people suffering from hypertension need to treat is for all the life, keeping sure that it doesn't get worst because is a direct cause of stroke and ictus. In Myanmar, 30% of the population suffers from hypertension and are mostly elderly people who are not able to work anymore and therefore cannot afford medical care (which lays directly on patient finance availability). 

Mrs. D health gets worst during these months, she could not come to the Clinic for the general city's instability. Dr. Khant visits her a few days ago giving proper treatment and a full month of drug coverage for hypertension, making sure she will not run out the next time. In these uncertain times, we keep our focus on the most fragile people living in Myanmar, their stories and the resistance that they prove every day inspire us.
