Alumni Myanmar Institutes of Medicine Association (AMIMA) Races Time to Help Cyclone Victims
Date:5/11/2008

PHILADELPHIA, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- As the global community observes the destructive aftermath of the world's second most deadly cyclone of all time and the associated mounting frustration over getting humanitarian aid for cyclone victims, the Alumni Myanmar Institutes of Medicine Association (AMIMA) has been proactive-and more importantly, successful-in initiating medical care at the low lying delta area of Myanmar where 100,000 people are assumed dead. AMIMA has funded the traveling medical team led by Dr. U Hla Myint, a revered Professor of Medicine and the Chairman of the Myanmar Medical Council (MMC), a local well-respected non-governmental organization. The mobile medical team has an existing network of Myanmar physicians throughout the rural, delta region as well as in remote villages whose access is restricted to native Burmese.

As Myanmar is a primarily rural and heavily impoverished nation, there is no water and electricity in many areas; communicable diseases will threaten the affected population, including typhoid, dysentery, cholera, Dengue hemorrhagic fever and malaria. The number of deaths are predicted to reach an epic 1.5 million as the few resources that existed have been decimated.

This established, mobile medical team provides medical care, clean water and food to prevent infectious diseases and is additionally providing psychological counseling. Foreseeable needs include: medicines, emergency health kits and water sanitation supplies. Dr. Kyi Minn, a regional advisor for World Vision, a global humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities assists Professor U Hla Myint's team. Many physician members of AMIMA from the USA, UK and Asia are a
