Advocacy and Safeguarding Work for Health Workers

It is with your generous contributions that THET can continue its efforts towards safeguarding healthcare professionals and assisting those on the ground to provide quality healthcare in Myanmar. 

As we mark the one-year anniversary of the coup which took place on the 1st of February 2021, in Myanmar, we re-evaluate the position of healthcare workers and their dire need for safety and stability.  

For instance, earlier this week, Dr. Thinn of THET was invited to speak at an event titled “Health workers - targets or collateral of armed conflict?”.  Dr. Thinn stressed the unfortunate collapse of healthcare infrastructure in Myanmar, and the importance of raising awareness around the ongoing conflict. As healthcare workers are at the forefront of the civil disobedience movement, they are identified as prime targets. In fact, 129 health facilities have been attacked and over 30 health workers killed.  

To tackle the urgency of this issue, THET convened a shared space to coordinate the actions of previously fragmented Partners between UK and Myanmar through bi-weekly meetings. The drive and passion of partners resulted in the production of over 13 coordinated educational activities for doctors, nurses and medical students, 2 fundraising events, 4 Advocacy events, 4 television appearances, 7 media contributions and 14 journal publications.  

Thank you for your unfailing support as we continue to stand with health professionals in Myanmar.
