Condolences to Dr Nyo Nyo Kyaing’s family and friends

We have learnt with deep regret the passing away of former SEARO Regional Adviser-TFI, Dr Nyo Nyo Kyaing, on 29 October. As a colleague and a friend, she will be dearly missed.

Dr. Nyo Nyo Kyaing worked as National Programme Manager for tobacco control in Myanmar for ten years as well as serving the Ministry of Health. She conducted many studies demonstrating the negative effects of tobacco consumption on health but also poverty. She worked hard to bring an improved health care system to the people of Myanmar.

We extend our sincere condolences to Dr Nyo Nyo Kyaing’s family and colleagues in the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia.
