In this Global Platform video, Dr. San San Yi, chairman of Okkar Thiri, talks about the expansion of private hospitals in the country, which have increased from only one or two facilities during the 1980s, to 250 now. As more foreign investors are entering Myanmar, the quality of equipment and overall health care is continuing to improve, meaning that more people are being treated within the country. Looking ahead, the market is ripe for more private players, and public-private partnerships are set to be an area of high-growth potential.
