Online activities

Myanmar Doctors for Human Rights Network have been extensively engaging in online activities and have a big presence on social network.

The network has organised online campaigns to raise awareness about the atrocities and the attacks on the healthcare sector in the country. #MyanmarCovidSOS is one of the successful Twitter campaigns MDHRN have held and was carried out during the worst days of the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Myanmar to let the international community know about the people in Myanmar being ravaged by COVID-19 due to lack of medical access and help. This hashtag is still being used widely to date to report the resurgence in COVID-19 cases to raise awareness.

MDHRN also did a successful online #WhiteCoatStrike on Twitter on May 12, 2021, in coordination with other democracy activist groups and invited the international community to speak out against the deliberate attacks against healthcare personnel and obstruction in providing healthcare to the public.

In addition to the activism, MDHRN also has an online presence to do various online training activities, including but not limited to the following:

  • Mental health counseling, psychological first aid, webinars
  • WASH (Water and Sanitation, Hygiene) webinar for the volunteers working in IDP camps
  • Basic first aid training
  • Primary Trauma Care and Tactical Combat Casualty Care
