Health Pillar

Background

The Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI) is a multinational effort to foster integrated sub-regional cooperation and capacity building among Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.  Under the LMI Health Pillar, the United States is supporting these countries to address transboundary challenges to improve human health and in turn narrow the development gap in the sub-region.

Approach

The LMI Health Pillar carries out projects and activities under:

  1. Communicable and Emerging Infectious Diseases;
  2. Prevention and control of counterfeit as well as substandard medications;
  3. Regional collaboration to support implementation of the International Health Regulations; and
  4. Identifying and sharing best practices in human health.
