The Myanmar Thailand (MyTh) program involves all HI’s interventions’ contexts (Armed Violence Reduction, Emergency and Development) and was created in 2016 with the merge of 2 already existing missions, setting up cross border initiatives to integrate the return of refugees from Thailand to Myanmar as part of its regional strategy.

In Thailand, HI started working in 1984 and first focused its actions on the delivery of mobility and assistive devices to Thai and Burmese landmine/ERW victims. HI currently implements activities in the camps of Burmese refugees on the Thailand/Myanmar border and in three thematic areas: Rehabilitation, Disability and Social Inclusion (DSI) including inclusive child development, implemented in 5 camps and Risk Education (RE), implemented in 9 camps.

HI in Myanmar covers its entire mandate from emergency to development and going through Armed Violence Reduction (Humanitarian Mine Action). HI is part of several consortia and coordination mechanism including Health, Protection and Disaster Risk Reduction Clusters. In addition, HI coordinates with the National Victim Assistance Technical Group, gathering national and international actors under the umbrella of the National Mine Risk Working Group (MRWG) chaired by the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement (SWRR). HI’s strategy is based on 3 operational priorities as follows:  Armed Violence Reduction: Mine risk Education and Land Release -Inclusion:  Disability Social Inclusion & Support to Civil Society, inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction, Livelihoods – Health and Rehabilitation: Emergency Hospitals Preparedness; Mother and Child Health; Functional rehabilitation; Mental health and Psychosocial support.

The Disability Inclusion Specialist position has been created in 2019, in charge of the Myanmar Disability Inclusion Unit (DIU). The objectives were to build the capacities of the program to deliver a high quality technical assistance in disability inclusion and to position HI in Myanmar as a key stakeholder about inclusion. These two objectives have been achieved, despite the impacts of the COVID and the Coup. Now, we must go a step further, with a DIU fully autonomous and sustainable, and with a dedicated strategy about the involvement and contributions of the DIU within Myanmar and Thailand humanitarian landscapes.
