DOCTOR on Call, a healthcare service company, will launch up to 5,000 service centers across the nation before the end of 2018, with the aim of spreading health knowledge and information, its spokesperson said.
“The major purpose of opening the centres for healthcare services are to promote good health and well-being of the people residing in rural regions”, said U Tun Tun Naing, manager of Doctor on Call Co.
He said those centres will provide general healthcare knowledge, services and the latest information. Enquirers will have an opportunity to directly contact the respective physician to talk about the disease for which they are being treated.
Since last December, the healthcare service company has already opened 50 centres in Yangon.
The project will promote the country’s health status by raising health-related awareness and solving the health problems of rural communities to a certain degree, Dr Nay Win, member of Myanmar Medical Association, commented.
In addition, people may also dial the hotline number 1877 in emergency health situations, U Tun Tun Naing said.
