Located in South East Asia, Myanmar is SPANA’s newest permanent country. We are working in rural areas to provide veterinary care for working animals, especially oxen, which are heavily depended upon by communities to pull ploughs and transport produce.

SPANA runs one mobile clinic in Myanmar, which visits 30 villages and is expected to provide more than 6,000 treatments to working animals a year. We are also providing training to more than 200 veterinary students through our Clinical Skills Centre and mobile clinic.
