In partnership with the Hesperian Foundation, WEAVE released the first adapted Burmese version of the internationally renowned health handbook, Where Women Have No Doctor. This women?s health resource guide has been published in numerous languages. WEAVE is proud to have been able to contribute to such a valuable resource especially for Burmese health workers and the communities of women who have little or no access to healthcare.
Where Women Have No Doctor combines self-help medical information with an understanding of the ways poverty, discrimination and cultural beliefs limit women’s health and access to care. Developed with community-based groups and medical experts from more than 30 countries, Where Women Have No Doctor is an essential resource for any woman who wants to improve her health, and for health workers who want more information about the problems that affect only women or that affect women differently from men.
