Midwives are the backbone of Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Adolescent Health (SRMNAH) care. Workforce planning is essential to identify the knowledge and skills that are required so that they can achieve their objectives. Such planning is an integral part of health system strengthening and its strategic management. An SRMNAH workforce assessment was undertaken in Myanmar in order to obtain a basis for the development of midwifery workforce policy and planning.
