In this Aug. 31, 2012 photo, village nurses, who are also midwives, gather at a village health room during a briefing meeting given by a UNICEF child nutrition specialist in Zee Phyu Kwin village, near Pathein, in Irrawaddy Delta, Myanmar. Myanmar spent less than $1 per person on health in 2008, minus donor money, and ranks among the lowest countries in nearly every category of health care funding. Now, with the dramatic change that has given Myanmar an elected government, there are hopes for improvement, but the country faces a long climb. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)
