Mission Statement

Medical Action Myanmar (MAM) is a medical aid organization, whose mission it is to improve access to quality health care for the poorest of Myanmar people. We focus on the most vulnerable people in very remote areas and in urban slums, where most people cannot afford to pay for adequate health care services.

Description

MAM is supporting a network of 10 clinics for HIV/TB and general health in sub-urban and in remote areas. In addition, MAM is supporting a network of 2000 Village Health Volunteers in remote hard-to-reach areas, focusing on malaria, TB and basic health care. These health services cover approximately a population of more than 2 million people. Above all else, MAM values: accessibility for the poor, patient dignity, proven effectiveness, accountability to patients and donors, non-discrimination and cost-effectiveness and replication of effective activities to a large scale. MAM supported approximately 1,000,000 patient consultations a year.
