Sweden contributes US$43 million to healthcare in Myanmar

Sweden grants US$43 million (SEK385 million) to the Access to Health fund for Myanmar.

Access to Health is a large fund handled by UNOPS (United Nations Office for Project Services). With support of Sweden, the United States, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, the fund will continue to build and strengthen the healthcare in Myanmar between 2019 and 2023, for a total of 215 million dollars.

“We strive to include the most marginalized people in the development. Our support for Access to Health combines the most important parts of our development cooperation in Myanmar”, says Anders Frankenberg from Yangon Assistance Council, according to Sida.

Sweden has raised sexual and reproductive health as a separate point for what the fund will work with.
