Fifteen million adolescents and youth do not have access to sexual and reproductive health information and services in Myanmar.


We are working to change this.

Evidence for Action: Research and Evaluation

One of the major activities that MPPR engages in is public health research. Working with partners such as UNICEF, Population Council, MSI, PAI, and Pathfinder International, MPPR has implemented a number of research projects including a nationwide health facility assessment for newborn care, project evaluations of youth organization support and high risk women. Most recently, in collaboration with the Departments of Medical Research and Maternal Reproductive Health, and Pathfinder International, MPPR conducted research on sexual and reproductive health behaviors of young people in Southern Shan State involving over 520 youths between the ages of 18-24.
