Health / Special Medication and Medical Services

Vaccination & Travel InsuranceAs per the report prepared by WHO for the information purpose, all the travellers to Myanmar are recommended to consult with personal physicians before traveling to Myanmar although the vaccination is not formally recommended, unless travelers come from yellow fever zones.  Mosquito and insect repellents shoud be brought personally and mosquito-bites should be avoided whenever possible. Vaccination for tropical diseases like Hepatitis, Tyhoid, Tuberculosis and Tetanus should be considered for travellers, who would like to travel to remote area of Myanmar.

You should bring sufficient medication with you, if required.  Please note that many drugs behave differently while you are diving. Notify us of any medication you are using, so we can note it in your travel file.

The Medical Services in Myanmar's provincial capitals and tourism destinations are ok but do not have our European standard. One privately owned hosiptal, Pan Hlaing hospital in Yangon is used by Diplomats, UN personnel and foreign ex[erts residing in Myanmar.
