The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement of Myanmar, with the support of UNICEF, launched a set of guidelines and minimum standards, alongside monitoring and oversight plans, aimed at bettering the lives of children in residential care. In addition to detailing the steps that residential facilities will need to take to register and be eligible for Government support, the guidelines establish the services that these institutions will have to provide to children such as accommodation, health care, hygiene, nutrition and education, including vocational training. Minimum standards of quality for all these essential services are also stipulated in the guidelines. Read the Guidelines in Burmese here. English translation pending.
