Abstract: Pre-natal care plays a critical role in maternal and infant healthcare. The
present work seeks to assess a maternal and infant care program administered
by Global Community Service Foundation, (GCSF), in the Inle lake area of
Myanmar (formerly called Burma), and identify ways to expand it. Such
expansions includes both the identification of additional villages to
service by GCSF, as well as the identification of maternal and infant care
knowledge gaps of women and health care workers with the objective of
training. Statistics without Borders (SwB) members worked closely with the
organization to design and implement the surveys, as well as process and
analyze the data. This paper discusses the key results.
