Most of Myanmar people don’t know about health well. Services from Ministry of Health in Myanmar did not work well since decades. Lack of health knowledge goes to poor health and unhealthy status of health everywhere in Myanmar.
Poor sanitation of food and drink could be seen even at Sule, very heart of Yangon.
Venders, food stalls and even some big food-stores have been in poor sanitation and government did not check them for safe.
In Myanmar, one can buy such drugs like cortisones, antibiotics, sex motivating pills, contraceptives and injections everywhere. Drug-shoppers have sold their drug to poor people without prescription from experts. One can easily get dangerous drugs in Myanmar.
System for Health of People did not formed well since 50 years ago.
Cost of health therefore is too expensive. If one gets Acute Appendicitis, he or she has to soend about K. 10,000,000 and above even at government service.
Morbidity and mortality for maternal and child and babies are too high. Due to lack of care of government services, 80%of people in Myanmar could not get safe water and safe food and also medical care .
HIV/AIDS patients and TB patients could not get enough and effective drugs from public services. NGOs , too, could not share well-complete treatments for them.
Then Myanmar is the 2nd country of the most cancer prevalent. In Myanmar cancer is the disease which appears at old age, 65 and above. The most prevalent cancers are HCC, Hepatocelluler carcinoma, Ca Lungs, bronchogenic carcinoma, and Ca Stomach.
Now a days, there have been many cases of STROKE. due to hypertension or atherosclerosos or coronary arterial diseases. People mostly cannot do medical checkup. Food they take has plenty of sodium, fat, sugar and also starch. All these can raise the hazards for health. Smoking, chewing betels and drinking low quality alcohol make Myanmar males poor health. Taking contraceptive pills without medical checkup and enjoying outside foods and malnourished about nutrition, majority of females over 40s are overweight.
Myanmar government must reform HEALTH., the whole health system of Myanmar.
