Welcome Address

It is our great pleasure on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Sports to welcome you to the 49th Myanmar Health Research Congress to be held from 18-22 January 2021 at the Department of Medical Research, Yangon, Myanmar.
The Myanmar Health Research Congress has been held since 1965. Over the years, researchers, public health specialists, clinicians, pharmacologists, pathologists, microbiologists, biochemists, molecular biologists and many experts from various fields have contributed their work at these research congresses. These events each year aim to present and provide evidence-based applicable research findings to end-users to attain the highest quality in health care. They also serve as a platform for researchers both nationally and internationally to exchange updated scientific information, share innovative ideas and ignite new research collaborations.
The theme for the 49th MHRC will be “Experiences from the COVID-19 Pandemic”. Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are now occurring at unprecedented speed. Nowadays, the COVID-19 pandemic threatens all societies and impacts the various sectors that are a part of our lives. Stakeholders from both developed countries as well as resource limited countries have made plans and strategies for prevention and control of COVID-19 from experiences and lessons learned.
We hope you will join us and we look forward to seeing you all at the 49th Myanmar Health Research Congress.
