Humanitarian situation and needs

Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) was ruled by a military junta for decades. The first general election in 20 years was held in 2010. This was hailed by the junta as an important step in the transition from military rule to a civilian democracy. A civilian government led by President Thein Sein was installed in March 2011. Despite this inauspicious start to Myanmar’s new post-junta phase, a series of reforms in the months since the new government took up office has led to hopes that decades of international isolation could be coming to an end. Myanmar still remains one of the poorest country in the world, ranking 171 in the GDP per capita worldwide and 149 in UNDP human development index. Although there is a lack of reliable health data, it is commonly agreed that Myanmar has some of the worst health indicators in South-East Asia. The ethnic areas, that have been off-access for decades, are amongst the most vulnerable regions in Myanmar with a very low literacy rate resulting in various challenges such education, health services, livelihood, and food insecurity. The largest ethnic group is the Bamar people. Bamar dominance over Karen, Shan, Rakhine, Mon, Rohyinga, Chin, Kachin and other minorities has been the source of considerable ethnic tensions and has fuelled intermittent protests and separatist rebellions. Military offensives against insurgents have uprooted many thousands of civilians. Ceasefire deals signed in late 2011 and early 2012 with rebels of the Karen and Shan ethnic groups suggested a new determination to end the long-running conflicts, as did Chinese-brokered talks with Kachin rebels in February 2013.

Our action in the field

PUI has worked since 12 years with various communities in Myanmar to improve access to primary healthcare and reproductive health services, as well as to promote appropriate practices for health and hygiene in remote areas and among vulnerable groups (mother and children, population at risk or with HIV/AIDS). In close collaboration with local health authorities, PUI contributes to develop community health networks, reinforce their capacities and strengthen their integration within the governmental health system. Innovative strategies such as mHealth (mobile health), as well as cultural and conflict-sensitive approaches are fostered to leverage the health services provided, overcome barriers that limit access and stimulate demand for services. While focusing mainly on health programmes in Myanmar, PUI always looks to develop an integrated approach to address health and its determinants, including water and sanitation, food security and livelihoods, to meet the needs of the most vulnerable.

Humanitarian situation and needs

the 2012 Tokyo Conference, Afghanistan announced its road map toward self-reliance. However, great challenges remain to overcome. Security, social and economic development, good governance, and justice are, among other issues, essential pre-conditions in order to achieve the country’s ambitious objectives. The preparation of withdrawal of international troops in 2014 as well as the preparation for the presidential elections in April 2014 also questions the stability of the country. Humanitarian stakeholders forecast an increased level of violence, a rise in unemployment and criminality. Rebuilding and strengthening the health-care system is still a priority in Afghanistan, with the country-wide continuation of the implementation of BPHS (Basic Package of Health Services), and the EPHS (Essential Package of Hospital Services), initiated in 2003 and 2005. The security situation remains unstable. Many attacks continue to claim lives, mostly among the Afghan population. In 2014 the Afghan Presidential and provincial elections are the principal focus of attention given the importance of a peaceful political transfer of authority for the country’s stability and future international support. The Presidential poll made the transfer of power from one elected president to another for the first time in the country’s history. The political transition coincides with a security transition as Afghan security forces have taken up security responsibility from international forces which are ending their combat mission by the end of this year.

Our action in the field

We strongly believe that PUI action can contribute to improve the life of Afghans and promote peace. Therefore, and despite the uncertainty brought by the “transition” and 2014 political agenda, PUI reaffirms its commitment to support Afghan people through this strategy, based on its experience of the country and expertise in health interventions. Since the beginning of 2013, PUI in Afghanistan decided to start interventions on emergency preparedness and medical interventions for conflict-affected populations. With a 28% increase of civilian casualties during the 6 first months of 2013, it is indeed crucial to have health staff prepared and equipped for mass casualties, and also to be prepared for population displacements. In the coming years, PUI will also start looking at developing integrated projects with WASH and health activities, rehabilitation and economic recovery. For the first time, PUI also participated in August 2013 to the national food security survey in Daykundi province coordinated by the FAO.
