The Project seeks to increase coverage of essential health services of adequate quality, with a focus on maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), and, in the event of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency, to provide an immediate and effective response to Eligible Crisis or Emergency. Consequently, women and children in Myanmar will have expanded access to the basic essential package of health services (i.e. increase of live births attended by skilled health personnel and increase in the proportion of women, who need health care for the post-partum period).
Service availability and readiness level at the primary health care facilities at the township and smaller towns will improve to deliver the basic essential package of health services.
Out of pocket expenditure on health will reduce as a share of the total health expenditure

If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com.
