Project Details

Decades of ethnic conflict in Eastern Myanmar have culminated in a serious healthcare crisis. To receive basic care, people will walk over an hour. Even then, a medic may only six months training.

To help address this problem, we partner with Earth Mission Asia (EMA) who founded a Physician Assistant Training Program. The aim of the program is to establish and support a high-level health facility with both out-patient and in-patient services, pathology, and reliable referral services.

Students are trained as Physician Assistants in a five year program equipping them with the knowledge and skills to address the health problems of the areas they often return to serve. Ten students are accepted to the program from rural and difficult-to-access areas, each year.
