CARE has worked in Myanmar since 1995 and aims to improve the living standards of rural communities.
CARE works with a focus on health education, HIV prevention and nutritional support for children and pregnant women.
We also work on water and sanitation projects, access basic financial services, and continued post emergency programmes.
Responding to emergencies
In May 2008, Cyclone Nargis swept across the Ayeyarwaddy Delta and Yangon regions of Myanmar devastating entire towns and villages and leaving 2.4 million people affected.
CARE responded immediately with urgent and essential emergency relief, providing food, essential household items, safe drinking water and temporary shelter materials.
CARE is committed to providing continued support to survivors of the cyclone and other disasters.
CARE aims to reduce the transmission of tuberculosis and malaria by encouraging people to seek diagnosis early and providing information.
We work with women to improve their sexual and reproductive health by tackling values and beliefs¬†which¬†create barriers that prevent women from seeking health advice.
HIV prevention and care
Stigma and misinformation surround the growing HIV epidemic in Myanmar.
CARE works to prevent HIV transmission while aiming to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV and the children orphaned or vulnerable as a result of the virus.
