Malteser International has been operational in Myanmar since 2001, targeting communicable diseases,
providing comprehensive primary health care services, improving the access to safe water and
sanitation facilities, enhancing disaster risk reduction capacities and piloting some small livelihood
initiatives. The approach has a strong focus on community participation as well as cooperation with
local partners.
Since 2003 Malteser International is active in northern Rakhine State and since 2005 in central
Rakhine State. In northern Rakhine State a comprehensive program in the sectors Health and WASH
as well as relief assistance after disasters is implemented. It includes community based basic health
care services, services related to mother and child health and measures for the control of communicable
diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. Further WASH activities focusing on improved access to
safe water and sanitation. The program aims at building the capacity of both community and
government institutions. Since the August 2017 conflict, the program had to be adapted to the postconflict context with limited access and reduced implementation. In central Rakhine State the program
focuses on community based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation including WASH
and construction of infrastructure.
