In Myanmar, Shan State has some of most concerning health indicators in the country. The northern part of Shan State is affected by conflict, with frequent fighting impeding the delivery of health services. The majority of the population lives in rural, hard-to-reach and conflict-affected areas, beyond the reach of governmental facilities and services, and is considered highly vulnerable. This partnership will help build and improve community health centers and empower health staff from ethnic health organizations and ethnic community-based health organizations (EHOs/ECBHOs) in Myanmar’s Shan State to deliver quality health services, particularly for mothers and children.
