The faculty of University of Public Health, Dr Kay Khine Linn, Dr Win Aye Hlaing and Dr. Cho Thet Khaing, participated in 10-weeks program of "Community engagement to improve HIV/AIDS and maternal health outcomes in Myanmar" from 4 May 2014 to 12 July 2014 in Monash University, Melbourne, Australia together with other 16 senior representatives of Myanmar's health sector . This program was led by the Monash Sustainability Institute with funding from the Australian Government's Australia Award Fellowships. It emphasized capacity building and evidence-based approaches to primary health care, community engagement, sustainable development and improved outcomes of HIV/AIDS and maternal health in Myanmar. The program drew on the world-leading health capabilities in the Monash Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Business and Economics, Science, Arts and Information Technology. During the 10-weeks program, the Fellows had an opportunity to visit various Monash campuses including hospitals and rural health care facilities. The program was interactive and Monash researchers also learned about current issues in Myanmar community health just as the Myanmar fellows learned about Monash initiatives in community health and related areas. Together, Monash and Myanmar established enduring collaborative relationship responsive to improved health outcomes for all concerned.
