The New Humanitarian | Myanmar’s post-coup healthcare collapse

The public health system has come to a near standstill following the military’s 1 February coup, which ousted Myanmar’s elected government. Security forces have responded to widespread protests with increasingly deadly force. Rights monitors say at least 286 people have been killed as of 24 March – including a seven-year-old girl reportedly shot dead in her home this week. UN rights experts say the military crackdown could amount to crimes against humanity under international law. Source: The New Humanitarian | Myanmar’s post-coup healthcare collapse
