Sweden co-funded Myanmar’s project, “SRHR STRONG+” together with the United States, United Kingdom and Switzerland by donating thier budget through the Access to Health Fund, an organization pooling fund from multi-donors to support the health sector in Myanmar.

“SRHR: STRONG+” stands for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: Strengthening the Realization of National Guidelines, Policies, and Plans.
It was organized by PATH, a nonprofit global health organization, in collaboration with Local Resource Centre and Marie Stopes International (MSI) in Myanmar. The new project is expected to be launched in June 2019.

The project will work closely with three different groups of people that are health providers, media personnel and communities to promote the importance of sexual and reproductive health in Myanmar.

The project will support the health providers in educating people in the community toward the role of sexual and reproductive health. Besides, the project will train the media personnel about the appropriate way to report on and talk about SRHR.

Moreover, the project team will organize community events across Myanmar to ensure that the awareness about SRHR and the project’s policy are brought to the communities and people everywhere in Myanmar.

Wrote on its official Facebook page, the Embassy of Sweden Section Office in Yangon expressed, “we are happy to be a part of the new Sexual and Reproductive Health Policy in Myanmar.”
