Myanmar and the UK share close links in the field of health education and training through the work of numerous organisations and partnerships. The MUKHA was born in October 2016 to enhance the coordination, collaboration and consistency of deliveries from Myanmar-UK partnerships.
MUKHA operates under the guidance of the Myanmar Steering Committee and the UK Steering Committee.
The Myanmar Steering Committee is chaired by Permanent Secretary Professor Thet Khine Win and the UK Steering committee is chaired by Professor Ian Cumming,the ex-CEO of Health Education England and now he is the Chairman of the West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust, and Professor of Global Healthcare Workforce and Strategy in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Keele University.
Two steering committees meet twice a year to ensure that work plans are aligned and working towards a shared vision.
The members of the Myanmar steering committee group are endorsed and selected by His Excellency, the Minister of Health and Sports.
