These days of summer are thrilling for us, right now Daniele, MedAcross president and radiology professor, and Erika, our country manager are in Thailand to meet the Myanmar staff in Ranong, at the border with Myanmar.
Since 202 our international staff can't travel to Myanmar, due to the Covid19 first and for visas difficulties later. During the past weeks, the Thai government allows Myanmar citizens to spend a few days in the country, making possible the reunion with our amazing Burmese staff! We are excited to see them and we planned a two days meeting to discuss new strategies to continue providing free medical care to Burmese patients through mobile clinics, telemedicine and community education.
In the last months, the MedAcross Mobile Clinics visited several villages in both the islands of the Lampi archipelago and the rubber and oil palm plantations in Kawthaung district, providing medical examinations and medicines for residents with health problems. The MedAcross Mobile Clinic is always integrated with the telemedicine project to constantly monitor patients living in isolated and inaccessible areas for several months of the year, watch the project video.
