The main goal of Medical Action Myanmar (MAM) is to improve access to quality health care in Myanmar targeting poor, marginalized, and vulnerable people.
The initiative is from Dr Frank Smithuis and Dr Ni Ni Tun, who previously worked for Médécins sans Frontières Myanmar from 1994 to 2009. They are working with a team of very committed and experienced health professionals. In 2009 medical services were started in 1 clinic in Hlaingthayar, a peri-urban slum area of Yangon. Since then we expanded to 12 clinics across Myanmar providing a range of medical services for patients with HIV, TB, Hepatitis, Reproductive Tract Infections and Malnutrition, integrated in Basic Health Care services.
