- Global Health Outreach
This trip is now closed. Check out our other trips here.
We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupational therapists, students, logistics (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.
Global Health Outreach will be taking its third trip to Myanmar, formerly called Burma, in October 2018. Myanmar is nestled between India and Bangladesh on the west, China on the north/northeast and Thailand on the east, and has slowly begun to open up to outside influences. A nominally civilian government was introduced in 2011, while November 2015 elections have given more hope to the people of Myanmar. Business, tourism and even religious freedom advocates are all hoping to see improvement for the daily lives of the Myanmar peoples.
Our last team served in the capital city and then took a short domestic flight to a small city in the mountains, where we served for several more days. In each site we experienced an amazing welcome and warmth by the Myanmar population. This year we will again serve in both of these sites, including in a boys detention center where we expect to broaden our impact to some 400 boys.
Our 2018 team will be limited to 15 team members comprised of 4-5 medical providers (including a dermatologist), 2 dentists, 1-2 hygienists, 1 pharmacist, 1 physical therapist, 2-3 nurses and 2 non-medical team members.
Please prayerfully consider joining this second trip for GHO to Myanmar.
