Denial Of Access To Maternal Care In Myanmar ‘Is A Human Rights Violation’
New York Times: The Waiting Game
Nicole Sganga, contributor
“…Myanmar confines many of the Rohingya Muslim minority to closed camps and largely denies them adequate medical care. … Being denied access to proper maternal care is a human rights violation that deserves notice — and redress. … If we’re going to fix problems of maternal mortality in less developed nations, then we need to overcome the fear and stigma behind visiting a hospital or emergency clinic. We need to increase public access to trusted medical personnel in remote areas. Most importantly, we need to stop waiting” (5/20).
