Free Diabetes Clinic Wachet Hospital 2014
Brighter Future Foundation visited Wachet Jivitadhana Hospital for the second time round in August 2014 to provide a comprehensive package care for patients with diabetes. There were a total of 17 volunteers including Prof. Saya U Nyunt Thein, Prof. Daw Than Than Aye, Prof. U Ko Ko and Dr. Daw Moe Wint Aung from Yangon along with four UK practising volunteers and junior doctors. 260 patients were offered annual blood tests and physical examinations including retina and blood pressure. Two weeks supply of medications were also donated. Lastly, the Affinion Point-of-Care HbA1c analyser has now been donated to the Wachet Hospital, which will encourage the routine use of HbA1c in Wachet and vicinity areas. We would like to thank all the volunteers who came along with us, staff at Wachet hospital, Alere (UK) and all our friends who have generously donated towards this project. We intend to implement similar comprehenisve services for deprived patients with diabetes all throughout the year in the near future.
