Improving Health in Burma

USAID and P&G have developed a multi-year, multi-program Global Development Alliance that will invest at least $2 million over the first two years to provide access to 200 million liters of clean drinking water, promote better hygiene behaviors, and build capability linked to improvements in delivery of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) services in Burma.

Improving Health in Burma

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) and Procter & Gamble (P&G) have launched a partnership to improve health in Burma. Over the next two years, USAID and P&G intend to make joint investments of at least $2 million on health projects aimed at providing clean drinking water through provision of P&G Purifier of Water packets; promoting better hygiene behaviors; and building capacity to deliver improved health services to mothers and children. Population Services International (PSI) will implement these projects in-country.

This partnership builds on the cooperation between the United States and the Government of Burma to improve health and advance prosperity for the people of Burma. Moreover, it will build on USAID’s commitment to the Millennium Development Goals and the Global Child Survival Call to Action aimed at reducing maternal and child mortality rates by ending preventable child deaths and improving the lives of women and children worldwide.
