Shae Thot: The Way Forward
Shae Thot uses an integrated, holistic approach to alleviate poverty and improve health in villages in Myanmar by tackling problems in a range of areas, including maternal and child health, livelihoods, food security and water, sanitation and hygiene. By partnering with local organizations and working closely with communities, Shae Thot is building local capacity for decision-making and long-term planning, creating impact that will last long beyond Pact’s presence. With activities in nearly 2,000 villages, the project has trained hundreds of thousands of community members and health workers in child health and nutrition, provided mobile-clinic health and family planning services to tens of thousands, increased the percentage of women who give birth with a skilled birth attendant, provided wide-ranging hygiene training to stem the spread of disease and improved potable water access.
