In 2021/22 the FCDO provided £49.4 million in aid to Myanmar. 70 percent of this was to deliver healthcare and humanitarian support. Through our Tropical Health and Education Trust programme, we support the Royal Colleges and Cambridge Global Health Partnership to help address the acute health workforce crisis that followed the coup. This includes getting Myanmar doctors and nurses access to web-based learning materials, and helping establish an innovative service delivery mechanism (e.g. telemedicine) in this difficult security context. We are now making arrangements for this important work to continue in the immediate term.
