A new report on the health status of communities in conflict-affected areas of eastern Burma presents data from the first large-scale health survey since the recent ceasefires. The report highlights the critical role of ethnic health structures in providing services and addressing basic health needs, but indicates that key long-term health goals will remain unattainable until there is sustainable peace and structural reform.
Dr Cynthia Maung, well known community leader, and colleagues will launch the report: The Long Road to Recovery: Ethnic and Community-based Health Organizations Leading the Way to Better Health in Eastern Burma, by the Health Information System Working Group.
