Thailand extends medical aid to the Philippines

 BANGKOK, Nov 16 – Thailand will dispatch 40 doctors to the Philippines and allocate Bt20 million worth of medicine for the disaster-ravaged country.
Public Health Minister Pradit Sintavanarong said the medicine will be delivered to the island nation on Monday while the doctors will be assigned from several hospitals in Bangkok and other provinces.
Wachira Pengjuntr, deputy permanent secretary for public health, said restoration work in the Philippines should take at least three months.
He said either the air force or navy will transport the Thai medical team to the country, tentatively scheduled for next week. (MCOT online news)
