I recently come across a very informative blog on health in Myanmar (Burma). Written in Myanmar (Burmese) language, this site aims for the Myanmar (Burmese) people, to distribute and educate health problems encountered in Myanmar to the Myanmar people. The site is written by a group of Myanmar (Burmese) health professional, and moderated by an experience doctor from Myanmar (Burma). The aim of the Public Health in Myanmar is (according to the site):
- To disseminate public health concepts and practices
- To present contemporary international public health issues
- To present and discuss public health problems of Myanmar
There are already more than one hundred articles in the blog, ranging from common health problems like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, HIV and AIDS, stroke, ischaemic heart diseases, heart attack as well as some medical knowledge like genetics, nutrition, contraception, and recent news and updates on health situation and problems in Myanmar (Burma). The site is very informative and worth a bookmark.
