MYANMAR: Movement Restrictions Hamper Access to Health Care

The Irrawaddy Magazine on 13 July reported that tens of thousands of people are being prevented from accessing medical services due to government-imposed travel restrictions on Muslims in Arakan following Buddhist/Muslim violence last year. With support from UNFPA, the Myanmar Medical Association launched three mobile clinics and one fixed clinic to assist in providing services to the affected population. Dr. Mukesh Prajapati, the humanitarian affairs specialist at the UNPFA is quoted saying, “Restrictions on the movement of Muslim communities affect access to health and medical care, particularly during medical emergencies.” Read in English: The Irrawaddy Magazine
