A health care community under attack

Phillippe Schucht

Half a century of military rule had left Myanmar`s health care system neglected, critically underdeveloped and catastrophically underfunded. Neurosurgical care barely existed when a civilian government finally took over health care a decade ago. The few medical specialists relied on antique British-colonial infrastructures and instruments.

Together with the local neurosurgical community, Philippe Schucht and his Team Swiss Neurosurgeons International started an intensive twinning program in 2012 with the aim to build a self-sustaining neurosurgical capacity. Dozens of young Burmese doctors and nurses received specialized neurosurgical training, both in Myanmar and abroad. Workshops, conferences and courses every 6-12 months helped integrate new procedures into clinical routine. By 2019, the number of fully qualified neurosurgeons had increased from 4 to 20, with an additional 50 in training.

The military coup of February 1st, 2021, put the fragile health care system under attack. Fearing a return of the devastating military ruling, doctors and nurses in Myanmar joined the Civil Disobedience Movement. As the country slips rapidly back into international isolation, deterioration of medical – and neurosurgical – care becomes a major threat to the wellbeing of the Myanmar people.

Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Salisbury Suite at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
