Passport Health Disaster Response Experts Offer Services to Myanmar Volunteers
Date:5/9/2008

BALTIMORE, Md., May 9 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT: Passport Health, nationwide travel medicine providers and disaster response experts will prepare anyone traveling to Myanmar to assist with recovery efforts after Cyclone Nargis. Cholera has broken out in 2 areas and there is no fresh water or food available. The flood-swollen waterways that crisscross the Irrawaddy delta are crammed with dead bodies and animal carcasses. Vaccines for food and water diseases like Hepatitis A and Typhoid are protective and available. Oral rehydration packets are available for cholera treatment and Passport Health will donate packets to all relief workers in need of travel medical services prior to leaving for disaster response.

In the past Passport Health, on short notice, supplied doctors and nurses to postal and publishing facilities along the east coast after the Anthrax attack of 2001. Additionally we prepared relief workers and relatives of victims of the Tsunami in Indonesia. After hurricane Katrina, Passport Health nurses were deployed to the Gulf Coast to vaccinate utility and relief workers. Passport Health nurses also supplied free flu shots to residents and Emergency Response Teams affected by the recent California wild fires.

Anyone interested in volunteering to assist cyclone victims should call our toll free number 1-888-499-7277 for immediate assistance.
