Myanmar project

1 comment

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

What an amazing opportunity!


Hopefully you found our "pre-deployment" conversation useful. I've also just linked up you and a pharmacist friend of mine from Myanmar on Skype - hope you find the support you need.


Please keep us updated about your experiences and do get in touch for support if you need. Best of luck!
