Access to Health Fund
Over the last half a century of isolation, and with limited resources, Myanmar has seen very low levels of basic health services, poor infrastructure, shortage of trained medical and paramedical staff, a chronic shortage of essential drugs and supplies, and high levels of out-of-pocket payments for health. This situation, magnified by conflicts and geographical remoteness, has led to considerable inequities in the utilization of health services.
To improve health equity in Myanmar, Access to Health will focus on the most underserved and vulnerable populations under a rights-based approach, bringing services where they are most needed and concentrating attention on conflict-affected areas. Access to Health will also dedicate funding and resources for strengthening the health system for the long term.See more
