How we work
In Myanmar, MSF has been working since 1992 and is currently providing healthcare in Shan, Rakhine, and Kachin states, as well as Yangon and Thanintharyi regions and in Wa Special Region 2. Over 1,000 international and national staff work closely together to provide high-quality care and treatment through a network of health centres, health posts and mobile clinics. The teams are made up of highly qualified medical staff, administrators, coordinators and experts in various medical, logistics, water and sanitation fields.
