DFID Burma is bringing disadvantaged and conflict affected people into the heart of all its development programme. Our aim is to ensure that people who have been affected by poverty, marginalisation and exclusion get access to quality services and can retain and build their human capital, whatever the circumstances they find themselves in. This means making sure groups, like the long-term displaced in parts of Burma and on the Thai-border can get a good education, good health and nutrition and the skills they can use to generate income or benefit from future jobs.
