Advancing Community Empowerment in Myanmar: critical service grants

July 25, 2018

In Myanmar, Pact has awarded new critical service grants that are expected to benefit more than 500,000 people in the southeast. They're part of the Advancing Community Empowerment project, funded by USAID. The grants have been awarded to project partners in Karen and Mon States, including the Karen Department of Health and Welfare and the Karen Ethnic Health Organization Consortium, Global Neighbors Thailand Foundation, Mae Tao Clinic, and Mon National Health Committee. These critical service grants focus on essential healthcare needs in vulnerable communities as well as among internally displaced persons, pregnant women and children under 5 years of age along the Thai-Burma border and in hard-to-reach communities.
