Myanmar represents the second largest country in the Southeast Asian region by sheer land size and has the fifth highest population numbers among the region’s various countries. Equipped with a growing economy, projected to grow at 7.4% over the next 5 years[i], Myanmar poses vastly untapped potential across sectors, particularly in its healthcare industry.
