Reports on distribution of new medical equipment and proper procedures

 June 26, 2017
Oxygen concentrators were distributed to 39 central hospitals and at 36 state and region hospitals with 100 to 200 beds, according to Minister for Health and Sports Dr. Myint Htwe’s clarification during yesterday’s Amyotha Hluttaw meeting.

Oxygen generators are portable medical devices designed to increase oxygen intake for patients with respiratory distress or low oxygen levels in their blood.

U Aung Thein, a parliamentarian from the 12th constituency of Bago Region, complained that FY 2017-2018 funds allocated for construction of a new hospital at Dhammathaw village in Pakkaung Township in Bago was diverted, after ground was broken, to construct a different hospital at Tapun village, Nattalin Township instead.

Dr. Myint Htwe said that the change of location took place without notifying the proper authorities, including the Ministry of Construction and the project planning office of the Ministry of Planning and Finance.
