The southeast Asian multi-ethnic country of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is one of the poorest countries in the world. Especially alarming are the high rates of infant mortality and the percentage of underweight children under five years of age. Until 2010, the country was governed by a military dictatorship. Violent confrontations between government troops and rebels from ethnic minorities fighting for more independence are ongoing. They have forced hundreds of thousands to flee. Most of this number live as refugees in their own country.
