The clinics were organized at the local community center and the township hospital with the help of local authorities and healthcare workers. Patients were screened for obesity, cholesterol, diabetes, and hypertension, and then consulted with a physician and dietician for diagnosis, education, and treatment.

Medications and multivitamins were distributed to most patients as necessary. Healthcare, including proper diet, lifestyle changes, and health management were also educated to patients. Patients were suggested to follow-up with local healthcare professionals for follow-up in the future. We plan to continue providing healthcare and education to underserved communities in Myanmar.
