CEA Myanmar Aids in the Fight Against Tuberculosis

CEA Myanmar Aids in the Fight Against Tuberculosis
Danny Gill

Earlier this year, CEA Project Logistics Myanmar completed the delivery and installation of five portable digital X-Ray machines. These machines are helping to aid in the early detection of tuberculosis and are vital tools in remote communities throughout Myanmar.

One such community is Sittwe, the capital of the Rakhine State, has many refugee camps and a local prison which have seen the benefits of these machines in action. The machines have aided in an increased rate of early detection, resulting in many lives being saved. The mobility of each machine is particularly advantageous enabling the teams to travel daily to surrounding townships across a greater area to detect, treat and follow-up on TB cases in the more remote communities of Myanmar.

Now six months in, CEA in conjunction with UNOPS – 3MDG, and American Procurement Service (APSCO) are continuing to support the fight against the disease in Myanmar. A further six digital X-Ray units were recently imported by CEA to be put into service in five different states throughout Myanmar and the capital Nay Pyi Taw. For all six installation locations CEA Myanmar provided customs clearance, transportation, installation and operator training for the doctors and radiographers.
