Monthly report from Myanmar: Su Sus News and Insights


Jeden Monat schickt uns unsere Projektleiterin in Myanmar Su Myat Oo (genannt Su Su) eine Zusammenfassung der Aktivitäten bei den Irrawaddy River Doctors und im Mutter-Kind-Zentrum. Darüber hinaus gewährt sie uns Einsichten in die aktuelle Lage im politisch instabilen Myanmar und welche Auswirkungen dies auf die Menschen vor Ort hat.

Wir geben ihren eindrucksvollen Bericht im Original in Englischer Sprache wieder. Hier sind ihre Beobachtungen für den Monat November:

Dear Dr. Veronika,

Hello and greetings from Myanmar. I hope you are healthy and fine. I want to write a monthly overview report for IRD November trip that was safely finished on November 23rd in the evening. During the trip our team was able provide medical treatment for 14 villages.

According to November trip schedule, our team restarted on November 1st. According to ICD result, a total amount of children and adults’ patients of 1981 patients could be reached. Thereby 70 % were general patients (1379) and 30 % and came to visit the dental clinic.We checked total number of 91 pregnancy women and did laboratory test for 70 women. And total number of 322 children under 16 year visited for medical check-ups, medical and dental treatment.Total deworming number for November was 198.

For November trip, our team continued to provid medical treatment for all 14 villages. The most reasons for visits were  Malaria and Dengue. Others came to get help concerning Hepatitis, Syphilis, HIV, diabetes mellitus, coughing, respiratory infection, disease of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. In the dental Clinic, we treated patients with dental caries, periodontitis, gingivitis, sometimes oral ulcer and tongue ulcer.

As planned, we restarted our health and dental education progamm in the schools. We visited two schools and sharied information about Dengue fever and Diarrhea as well as dental problems. We tought them how to protect from different infections and how to clean themselves in a proper way. Toothbrush and toothpaste as well as mosquito repellent lotion and soap were distributed. All  teachers thanked us for sharing knowledge and they invited us to come again.

In this trip, we got more patients than the last month because we added two villages as well as the schools. Now, our doctors and and the staff returned to home for their one-week holidays.
