Myanmar patients prefer India for organ transplants
Yangon -- More Myanmar citizens needing organ transplants choose to go to India for treatment due to restrictions at home, healthcare officials said.
Even though Singapore and Thailand offer similar services, many patients choose to go to India due to its lenient healthcare regulations and disciplines, an official from the Yangon General Hospital (YGH) said.
An official from KC Healthcare said transplant patients faced a lot of problems in Myanmar such as a shortage of organ donors and restrictions on surgical procedures, adding that the demand for kidneys was the highest.
