Myanmar (Burma)

Myanmar is the poorest country in Southeast Asia.

Myanmar is ranked 149 of 187 for Human Development and had been a “closed” country for nearly 50 years. With a long-neglected health system, Myanmar has high maternal mortality rates (250 per 100,000 births) and high under-5 mortality (66 per 1000 births). Over 30% of children under 5 are underweight, with a high incidence of TB, diarrhea and malaria, and local village health workers are poorly trained.
