Rural Health Center Design Guide Launch

  • New London Architecture 26 Store Street London, England, WC1E 7BT United Kingdom (map)

Article 25 is excited to invite you to the launch of our Myanmar Rural Health Centre's Design Guide on Monday 11th February at the Building Centre in London. This project started on the back of Article 25's work for the Reinvigoration of Yangon General Hospital. Article 25 delivered the project Masterplan in February 2017 and now we support the hospital with its implementation - a longterm plan which we expect to be completed in 20 years.

This work has given Article 25 a unique insight into Myanmar’s healthcare facilities and system. Considering the importance of that healthcare system to function as a whole and the potential to alleviate pressure from larger, overcrowded hospitals like YGH by improving smaller healthcare facilities like Rural Health Centres (RHCs), Article 25 initiated this project to explore the potential positive impact that smaller, local healthcare support infrastructure could have. A study into existing RHCs was conducted by a group of 14 industry professional’s from various backgrounds (architects, engineers and photographers) using their expertise to analyse how effective Rural Health Centre's infrastructure is in providing healthcare across the country.

Article 25 is a charity that relies on the support of built environment professionals and others to help fund our work. If you would like to make a donation in support of our work, this will help us to cover the costs of organising these events.
