Department of Health and Sports, ICF International, 2016. Myanmar demographic and health survey (MDHS) is the first of its kind to be carried out in Myanmar. MDHS 2015-16's main goal is to deliver up-to-date assessments of fundamental health and human health data. In particular, MDHS gathered information on infertility, marriages, reproductive attitudes, consciousness and use of techniques of birth control, breast-feeding practice, diet, maternal and infant health and death, HIV/AIDS consciousness and behaviour and other health-related matters (STIs) and other health-related questions such as tobacco and TB-knowing.
Since the MDHS study 2015-16 is the first DHS study in the state, no trends are analysed in this study. Information gathered by the MDHS will help policy makers and programme leaders to develop and evaluate programmes and policies to improve the health of the country's people.
Myanmar's health care finances and resources
Myanmar's immediate neighbor, Thailand, makes billions of dollars a year from non-Myanmar residents by offering them access to affordable treatment and state-of-the-art health care, where the country's shortage of financial and humanitarian support makes it hard for it to even serve the health care area. The ASEAN Health Communication states that some ASEAN member states are receiving support in delivering health care at world level in comparison to some of its counterparts in the West, making health care much less expensive.
That is why these nations are receiving billions of US Dollar annually from foreign clients coming for health care. Thailand's health care tourists earn $2 billion a year, which corresponds to about 40 per cent of health care tourists in other ASEAN states. The Hluttaw meetings did raise health care issues, but the relevant department replied that health care travel, not to speak of the fact that health care for the public is currently not possible for reasons of finance and personnel, i.e. health personnel.
Even the expansion of municipal clinics to care for the countryside is currently proving hard, and even urban clinics have difficulty recruiting a satisfactory number of physicians, says Dr. Myint Htwe, Union Minister for Health and Sport. "New hospital buildings, the extension and renovation of old clinics, the erection of serviced flats and the erection of new 16-bed support clinics all come on a budgetary basis.
Approximately 40 community clinics can be built in a fiscal year," said Dr. Myint Htwe, Union Minister for Health and Sport, at the Pyithu Hlauttaw meeting on June 5. Physicians who have to work in remote areas, such as frontier areas, have housing problems, so the costs of constructing residential areas for them must also be included in the budget", the Union Minister added.
The Hluttaw MEPs usually ask issues related to the problems of their electoral districts, such as the expansion of the number of health centres in the countryside, the appointment of more middlemen and nursing staff and the provision of a adequate number of physicians, drugs and health care facilities for the cities. There is no sub-township clinic even in Jamethin, the closest Nay Pyi Tawownship, making it difficult for those living in the countryside to get health care and even die, said U Tun Tun Tun Win, Hluttaw MP of Jamethin Aownship.
Another deputy for Pyithu Hlauttaw from the Chi Phwe Townhip in Kachin State, U Zone Teint, said that although there is a clinic in Myitkyina with 500 beds for the whole state, there are no experts who care for the patient, so it makes those in need always feeling very unhappy and they have to go to Mandalay or Yangon to get a doctor's fee.
" There are no specialist such as neurrologists, cardio-vascularists, gastro-enterologists and Urology in this clinic, so the patient has to go to either Mandalay or Yangon for care, but since the cost of travelling, medical expenses, etc. are so high, some cannot even pay to leave and give up their lives," said a local who had seen this kind of condition.
There are currently five regional and regional clinics with 200 hospital places, ten centrally located and 30 specialised clinics. In Myanmar there are also 1123 Town and Subtownship Centres. While the WHO states that three hospital beds are needed per 1,000 people, it is still not clear how many hospitalized people are in a nation like Myanmar with around 51 million inhabitants.
WHO statistics of 2015 show that basic health care and disease reduction for a single individual in low-development counties is around US$60, but in Myanmar the allotment to the Ministry of Health and Sport is just under K1000 billion, says Dr San Shwe Win, a deputy from Pyithu Hluttaw in Yekyi municipality in Ayeyarwaddy region.
So, if you calculate with the assigned budgets, the health care expenditures for one individual would be only 20 US dollars. Since the 2011-2012 financial year, however, the German federal administration has been increasing spending in the health care area. In accordance with the K86 statistics that have been accepted. In Malaysia, health care spending amounted to $13.7 billion in 2013 and is projected to increase to $22.9 billion in 2018.
For Singapore in 2015, 11 per cent of Singapore's GNP, which is S$76. 9 billion, was earmarked for the health area. While spending on health in these lands is much higher than in Myanmar, there is health care travel that supports the health care area. In 2015, 600,000 health travelers traveled to Malaysia, where the nation was given billions of US dollar.
The Philippines is working together with the Philippine health care industry as a PPP (Public PPP). A health care system should also be established in Myanmar to reduce the strain on the population, Dr San Shwe Win said. "Changes in the socio-economic system, an increased pace of expansion, the emergence of new kinds of disease, a shortage of health care expertise, a shortage of health care funding and a shortage of drugs are all direct issues affecting the population.
Therefore, a system that can give effective health system assistance to the administration and offer the necessary health care to the general population should be established as health insurance," he said. "Myanmar's health care spending accounts for only five per cent of the overall budgets and is far more behind that of other low-income nations, which spend nine per cent.
Many deaths are due to prohibitive medical costs," says U Win Win, a member of the Ingapu community in the Ayayarwaddy region, who spoke about the health issues that affect everyday life.
