5 September 2013

A new global index of health care access for children has ranked Burma as 102th worst country out of 176 nations. The Global Index of Health Inequality for Children, released by international charity World Vision, assesses the gap in health care access between poor and rich households, and rural and urban groups in societies. The report places Burma at number 102, one place above its neighbor Laos, but far below Thailand, which was ranked 62th. Child health care access is most equal in France and most unequal in the African nation of Chad.
