AbstractDescription: The five-year strategic plan for reproductive health has been developed to ensure that there is a logical and coordinated response to the reproductive health needs of the population in Myanmar. Development was initiated by the Ministry of Health (MoH) in discussion with the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). In order to develop the strategic plan, a Working Group was formed with members from various departments within the MoH, WHO, UNFPA, and other collaborating partners. This group undertook a review of the available information regarding reproductive health in Myanmar, and prepared the background documentation for the development of the strategic plan. An initial process of identification of key interventions and prioritization of these interventions was then conducted, in preparation for a retreat held in Mandalay with the participation of a range of stakeholders. Following from these efforts, the working group drafted and finalized this strategic plan. The following section of the strategic plan provides background information on the socio-demographic situation and an overview of health and the health system in Myanmar. The third section presents information on the status, ongoing activities, opportunities, and challenges in relation to specific areas of reproductive health. This is followed by a discussion of the policy environment. Section 5 presents the goal, objectives, and strategic directions of the plan. Section 6 discusses programme approaches and key activities. The annexes provide detailed logical framework and planning matrices for implementers.
