In Myanmar, CARE works to improve living standards in rural communities by improving access to healthcare, food, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene. All our programs address gender inequality. We have a particular focus on health education, HIV prevention and nutritional support for children and pregnant women. We also tackle values and beliefs that prevent women from seeking health advice. We support farmers to grow crops and rear livestock, and help people access basic financial services. We provide emergency relief when this is needed, and are committed to providing continued post-emergency support.
CARE has worked in Myanmar since 1995.
