Myanmar 2014 Census - Policy Brief on Children and Youth - Myanmar
Young people, important for the current evolution of our societies and for the hopes and futures of a nation, merit a good beginning in their lives through better healthcare, a better home setting, education and the removal of obstacles so that they can move into their adult years in a way that contributes to the economy and people.
Myanmar's 2014 census counts 14. Four million adolescents between the ages of 0 and 14 (29 percent of the overall population) and nine million between the ages of 15 and 24 (18 percent of the overall population). Between them, the overall populations of young people were 23.
5% of the 50. in the 2014 census. This figure has risen continuously between the 1973 and 2014 headings, while overall economic expansion has decelerated as a consequence of the fall in infertility. Provided the drop in fecundity and the rise in infant deaths continues, the overall populations will rise to 61 million in 2034 and 64 million in 2044, with the number of youngsters rising slightly to 24.
The number of older people in this age group will treble in 2044 compared to 2014 (2.9 million in 2014 to 8.6 million in 2044). The 2014 census shows that between a fourth and a half of young people are living in a budget that meets the fundamental conditions of good Health and Wealth.
Forty-one percent of the country and 15 percent of the city' s population need secure shelter. Thirty-eight percent of the country's young people and ten percent of the city' s young people are living in a budget that needs better sanitary facilities. Ninety-four percent of young farmers between the ages of 0-4 are living in a kitchen with fuel or fuel for use.
By using these combustibles, infants are threatened by airway illnesses, poisonings and fires. Six percent of the kids and 38. 5% of young people need an apartment that requires less care. There are 5 million young people who live in inferior homes such as cabins, homes made of wood and other kinds of homes made of inferior material or unstable shells.
Adequate shelter, especially for those who live in such homes, needs serious thought. In order to mitigate the risks of disease, the work of the Committee on the Environment demands the improvement of healthcare infrastructures, particularly in the countryside. These include better accessibility to safe and clean waters, better power, transportation, communications, road infrastructures and basic healthcare at reasonable prices and accessibility in the most deprived municipalities.
and adolescents (23 percent) were among the world' s impoverished groups, based on the Quintil prosperity index. The census 2014 reports that eight percent of the 10 to 13-year-olds are in employment. Over half of the working child is in "endangered" work, despite the 1993 Children's Act, which prohibits them from working and allows them between the ages of 12 and 14 to do only minor work that does not affect their educational, healthcare or personal wellbeing.
There is also a need for further mechanism to prevent babies (and their families) from starting work at a very young age. 3. Schooling is almost universally accessible to under 12s, but decreases continuously and severely thereafter. A half million teenagers are illiterates. Non-educated kids go to work early, but as they get older, they tend to become jobless or have poorly paid work.
It is necessary to make investments in sensible and available training. It is also important to educate them and their family about the importance of educational attainment. Myanmar had the highest number of ASEAN countries with 62 infants per 1,000 life natives (IMR) and 72 child mortalities under five years of age per 1,000 life natives (U5MR).
The highest values among the states/regions were recorded in the countryside, Ayeyawady and Magway regions and Chin State. Improving healthcare services, which are particularly affordably available and available in these priorities, would represent a significant step forward in reducing all-cause child deaths. Approximately 307,000 young people (1.4 percent) stated that they had a handicap in at least one area: seeing, listening, going, remembering/concentrating.
It is higher in the countryside (1.5 percent versus 1.0 percent) and in some states/regions of the countryside (Ayeyawady, Chin, Kayin and Tanintharyi). Similarly, women must receive healthcare training that is important for a healthful home. 6 percent of women between the ages of 15 and 17 are currently engaged.
Adolescents' fecundity rates were measured at 33 birth rates per 1,000 youngsters between 15 and 19 years of age. Improved accessibility to training for young mothers, especially in the countryside, would help to discourage them from marrying and hence giving birth. The provision of the right information and the right approach to sex and reproduction healthcare would guarantee the security during gestation, birth and caring for babies and young couple so that they can fulfil their needs in terms of childcare.
