Empowering Ethnic Minorities to Improve Maternal and Newborn Health in Myanmar

Read about our employees’ first-hand impressions of Takeda’s partnership with Save the Children in Myanmar. For one employee, hearing directly from the Kyaukkyi village health committee member about the sustainable difference the project is making in her community was “the most striking moment of the trip.”
