Plan International-led multi-risk project namely, ‘Creating an Advanced Transformation of Civil Society Environment for Resilient Building in Multi-hazard Settings’ funded by Sida through Plan International Sweden (SNO) initiated outbreak mitigation efforts for girls, boys and communities in Timor Leste and Myanmar.
