Myanmar National Health Plan 2017-2021. Ministry of Health and Sports, Myanmar. (2016)

immage

Investing in health is essential not only to improving health outcomes but also to supporting economic growth. Payoffs from investing in health are considerable. Global evidence shows that making the right investments in health stimulates economic growth. Between 2000 and 2011, health improvements accounted for about 11 percent of economic growth in low- and middle-income countries. A strong and coherent health system is the foundation for healthy children, families and communities, contributing to a productive workforce and a population able to take advantage of the opportunities created by economic growth. It also protects families from becoming poor, or from being kept in poverty, due to health care costs. The National Health Plan (NHP) 2017-2021 aims to strengthen Myanmar’s health system and improve equitable access to quality essential health services and interventions for the entire population.

Legal Gender Recognition: A Multi-Country Legal and Policy Review in Asia. UNDP and APTN. (2017)

immage

The vast majority of transgender people across the Asia-Pacific region are unable to obtain any official identification documents that reflect their gender identity. This lack of gender recognition fosters widespread social exclusion, stigma, discrimination and violence when individuals are perceived to deviate from gender norms because their gender identity and/or expression does not coincide with their sex assigned at birth. This report, Legal Gender Recognition: A Multi-Country Legal and Policy Review in Asia, undertakes a comprehensive review of existing laws, policies and practices related to legal gender recognition for transgender people in nine countries in Asia: Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Thailand.

Blind Spot: Reaching out to Men and Boys. UNAIDS. (2017)

immage

In a world of gender inequalities that disadvantage women and girls, publishing a report on how men are not being reached by health services and are not exercising their right to health may seem counterintuitive. It was indeed perplexing for me to learn that men were less likely than women to know their HIV status and less likely to access and adhere to HIV treatment. As a consequence, more men are likely to die of AIDS-related illnesses than women. As the world strives to reach the high levels of HIV service coverage required to end AIDS as a public health threat, this blind spot in the response to HIV can no longer be ignored.
