About the Event

Several celebrated speakers will talk on a wide range of Myanmar-related topics, from history to art to travel – a great opportunity for you to find out about one of the most unspoiled and beautiful Southeast Asian countries.

During the breaks there will be the chance to look at displays from charities active in Myanmar, talk to travel companies specialising in the area, and participate in a few ‘hands on’ experiences. Want to learn a few phrases of Burmese, or how to tie a longyi so it doesn’t fall off when you walk? This is your chance!

Also featuring “Everything you always wanted to know about Myanmar, but were afraid to ask!”, a question and answer session with a panel of Myanmar experts and seasoned travellers, who will endeavour to answer your questions on travel to Myanmar.

Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided, and all proceeds will go towards The Myanmar Family Medicine Project of the RCGP.

The Myanmar Family Medicine Project

In Myanmar there is no system for free family health care. Burmese doctors providing primary care do wonderful work in often very difficult circumstances for little or no money. General practice is not, unlike in the UK, a recognised specialty. This project is a Thames Valley RCGP initiative and our aim is to support and strengthen the development of primary care and public health in Myanmar.
