Equity Research in Myanmar

Final Application Deadline:  15 September, 2022

Program Begins: 02 October, 2022

Program Description

  • Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other disturbances to the health sector, strong evidence has emerged of its disproportionate impact on vulnerable groups leading to health inequities.  Such vulnerability may be associated with populations’ status based on ethnic origin, race, citizenship, internal displacement, stigmatization, poverty, and pre-existing physical and mental conditions.
  • The resulting health inequities that vulnerable groups face in Myanmar requires the conduct of research to address and mitigate these inequities caused by the social determinants of health.
  • To enhance building capacity to conduct research addressing inequities, we have developed a one-year Health Equity Training Program.

Targeted Audience
