Burma (also known as Myanmar) is a fragile state and has a long history of political unrest and armed conflict. Following elections in 2010, the country is now undergoing rapid change. The UK is the largest international donor to Burma. It spends almost half of its Burma expenditure on health, £110 million over the period 2010-15.
This review assesses whether the Department for International Development (DFID) is achieving impact and value for money in Burma through its aid to the health sector.
As a result of our findings we awarded a green score and made four recommendations.
