___________________________

( 2 ) The graduation parade of the 3rd Intake of
Defense Services Medical Academy  held

Yangon, 29 April - The graduation parade of the 3rd
Intake of Defense Services Medical Academy was held at
the parade ground of DSMA, here, at 7.30 am today,
with an address by Commander-in-Chief of Defense
Services Senior General Than Shwe.

At the ceremony, the Senior General inspected cadet
companies and took the salute of the graduation cadet
company.

The Commander-in-Chief of Defense Services presented
Best Cadet Award, Excellence in Training Award and
Excellence in Studies Award to Cadet Sai Htet Aung.

Then, the Senior General delivered an address. He
said:

On the day when the 3rd Intake of the Defense Services
Medical Academy is going to conclude, I am going to
tell you all what should be known. As you all have
learnt military science and medical science, you all
are going to be assigned duty in the Tatmadaw.

Being Tatmadaw doctors, you all will have to discharge
both national defense duty and medical duty. You all
have to take care of the health of the Tatmadaw
members and families and to discharge public health
duty for the national races from the border areas.

Only when all the citizens are healthy and strong,
will they be able to attain the highest efficiency of
man and will the nation be able to achieve all-round
development. Therefore, the National Health Committee
was constituted in December 1989, and the national
health policies were laid down.

The national health plan is being implemented to
realize the motto "Health for All" so that all the
citizens are healthy and strong. Health care has been
provided especially for rural and border areas. Now
the health care services have become extensive. As
hospitals have been upgraded region wise, modern
medical treatment of high standard can be received in
respective regions.

The most fundamental task in the health sector is
giving health education. If everybody is
health-conscious, the entire national people will
become healthy and strong. If everybody knows how to
live to be healthy and strong, how to prevent
diseases, what kinds of symptom common diseases have
and how it is good for them to undergo check-ups, our
people will become healthy and strong and will have
resistance to common diseases. If they are affected
with a disease, it can be easily cured as soon as they
know it.

Child health care, being a task of nurturing new
generation, is of vital importance.

To enable a people to become healthy and strong, one
generation after another is to be nurtured.

In addition, physical wellbeing is conducive to mental
wellbeing, so goes the saying, and only when one is
physically healthy, will one have mental happiness and
be able to use one's intellect in various ways. Health
care is a task contributing to promotion of education
standard.

Therefore, encouragement is being given to the
development of human resources in the health and
medical field, continuous study to improve Myanma
medical standard and the conducting of research.

Previously, there were only three institutes of
medicine and one institute of dental medicine in
Myanmar. Now there are 16 institutes of medicine and
universities concerning health. A lot of medical
scientists have been produced. To teach advanced
medical science, seven kinds of medical doctorate
courses, seven kinds of basic medical doctorate
courses, two masters courses on medical science, seven
diploma courses on medical science and four diploma
courses on pharmacy and paramedical science are being
conducted. As scholars have been sent abroad, over 200
got doctorate degree from abroad after 1988.

A study of advances in medical science in the 20th
century shows that surgical operation for the
substitution of human organs has become successful,
that artificial organs can be produced, that what
happens inside the body can be seen from outside, and
that surgical operation can be done with laser. As
regards technology, genetic engineering has evolved.
Various kinds of new medical equipment for diagnosis
have emerged. Similarly, as regards production of
medicines, medicines for hepatitis and polio as well
as for leprosy, tuberculosis and malaria have been
found.

So you all need to work hard to become outstanding
inventors in the medical field who can keep pace with
the time and to serve the interests of the Tatmadaw
and the people.

The motto of the Directorate of Medical Services is
"to be healthy, strong and ready to fight." In the
future warfare, such sophisticated weapons as
chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, weapons
which can frighten the people and weapons which can
destroy food and drinking water can be used.
Therefore, research on specialized subjects concerning
military medical science need to be done. Everybody
needs to think in advance that conventional remedies
are not enough in the modern warfare. Therefore, you
all have to know and understand the impact of
sophisticated weapons. You all need to be well-versed
in preventive measures and treatment. A doctor who
does not have a good knowledge of branches of military
medical science in the modern warfare, will become
just an ordinary person.

In addition, prevention of possible losses which can
occur because of health amounts to prevention of
possible losses in the strength of the Tatmadaw.
Therefore, you all need to have a sense of maintaining
the strength of the Tatmadaw.

I would like to tell you to be patriotic for you are
Tatmadawmen. Patriotism must be based on a sound
ideology. If not, patriotism can deviate from its way.
In the history of our country the strength of the
nation was strong when there was solidarity among
national races. When the national races were not
united, they had to try to end their conflict even
though there was no invasion from outside. The State
lagged behind in development and it usually became
weak in all sectors. So political solution given by
history for our country is non-disintegration of the
Union and non-disintegration of national solidarity.
If we face such bad situation, sovereignty will be
lost one way or another. Therefore, I would like to
urge you to keep patriotism and to safeguard Our Three
Main National Causes at the risk of the lives in
accord with the sound ideology.

You who will reach various parts of the country are to
carry out the tasks on promotion of health of the
national people with special attention. You are to
practice the Union Spirit and implement the tasks of
Our Three Main National Causes while actively
participating in rural development tasks in border
areas. Health and fitness of national people is the
defense power and economic power of the State. So you
are to take part in rural development tasks hand in
had with the Union Solidarity and Development
Association.

You are medical junior leaders so you must behave in
accord with the leadership qualities and must
safeguard the dignity of medical treatment and must
have capability in management of the members of
medical units.

The main duties of the Tatmadaw are fighting, training
and participating in community welfare service.
Therefore you must have will to fight, courage and
sacrifice. You must apply military science skillfully,
train military science for skill, study medical
science continuously, must exchange knowledge among
medical scientists in order to catch up with advanced
medical science and make efforts for progress in the
regions where duties are assigned as if they are your
native place.

In conclusion, in accord with the slogan of the
academy I urge you to build fit and strong Tatmadaw
for victory in every battle, train and make
preparedness for protection against danger we may face
in modern war through medical science, to actively
take part in national health care service as patriotic
Tatmadawmen, to try to become good Tatmadawmen and
military leaders and to safeguard the twelve noble
traditions of Tatmadaw at the risk of the lives. Next,
the Senior General left the graduation parade
ceremony.

After the parade, the Senior General met and cordially
conversed with the mother and the sister of the
outstanding cadet at the parlour of the Defence
Services Medical Academy.
