Quality Health Care

Medical Action Myanmar (MAM) is a medical aid organization, whose mission is to improve access to quality health care for the poorest of the Myanmar people. MAM focuses on the most vulnerable people in very remote areas and in urban slums, where most people cannot afford to pay for adequate health care services.People in Myanmar have very limited access to medical aid. The poor regions, in particular, have few to no health services and MAM wants to solve this issue. They are trying to tackle the problems by setting up a network of clinics in which basic medical aid is provided. In order to be cost efficient, the aim is to work on a large scale. Besides medical treatment, the organization also focuses on preventative education. However, in cases of malaria and tuberculosis prevention is not needed due to the fact that treatment helps to reduce the spread of the virus. Therefore, mostly HIV prevention is provided. This takes form in activities like condom and needle distribution and the treatment of sexually transmittable diseases. To further prevent the spread of HIV, they treat pregnant HIV + women in order to keep the disease away from their unborn babies. For people with insufficient funds, all medical services will be free. For others, some medical services will be charged. This will clear money for additional patients and encourage personal responsibility.
