Supporting Myanmar’s health care transformation

Myanmar is working to improve health outcomes for all and achieve universal health coverage by 2030. Since 2012, PATH has supported the government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, leveraging partnerships, advocacy, new technologies, and innovative approaches to address inequities in public health.

Gender equity and inclusion

We don’t design programs for people, we design programs with people. We are guided by the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and value community input at every step along the way. For example, women face unique health challenges in Myanmar, so we work with women to identify and overcome barriers to living healthy lives.
