I’m a HIV pharmacist by background and about to begin a 6 month project in Yangon with Medical Action Myanmar (MAM). MAM have a few clinics outside of Yangon and provide primary care healthcare including HIV, TB and malaria treatment. They are a fairly small charity and have never had a pharmacist volunteer. They would like me do some antiretroviral teaching but mainly improve medicines management.
This is my first humanitarian mission so I’m pretty nervous! I would appreciate any advice from more experienced humanitarian pharmacists and would hugely
appreciate any connections with pharmacists in Myanmar.
Thank you - Collette
