Our pioneering health programs provide key skills training and resource support for local medics, midwives and village health workers. Our local partner organizations reach more than a million people in Myanmar, and in many cases provide the only access to health care for displaced and isolated communities.

Reproductive Health: Our Mobile Obstetric Maternal Health Workers (MOM) Project established a network of more than 750 local health workers, and achieved a ten-fold increase in life-saving maternal health services in eastern Myanmar.
Child Health: Provides effective and low cost preventive care, including immunizations, increasing a child’s chance of survival, and greatly improving family and community health.
