Many years ago, health services in Lao PDR were lacking of quality medical services and quality providers comparing to the neighboring countries. The main reasons are: they were lacking modern facilities, equipment, tools, medicines, facility management, care management, quality personnel, staffs, nurses, and doctors mainly. Due to the lacking of the health education system, hygiene awareness, the lacking of the services mentioned above, many patients and their families are seeking the services in neighboring countries like: Thailand, Vietnam or Singapore. When seeking the services over the neighboring countries, of course the costs are much higher and more expensive. Only the top high-income family earners can afford the services but the low-income families are suffering and along the way, they have lost the family loved ones due to the affordability.
However the good news is, Lao people are more health conscious today than in the past because of the access to health education, hygiene education, publication available provided by the international health organizations, public school, public health care providers, and governmental operating hospitals. More private clinics and hospitals were built and upgraded to meet the local demands today. Thus today, LMHC is committed to enter the service to compete and provide quality medical services to the local communities with high quality care and treatments. We will invest in modern facility, equipment, tools, technology, personnel, and highly respected doctors in the country to joint our forces to serve the local communities.
