• Clashes across Burma have displaced hundreds of thousands of people following the February coup d’état, including nearly 267,000 people who remain displaced.
• Humanitarian access in Burma remains limited by clashes, roadblocks, COVID-19 mitigation measures, and military-imposed restrictions which hinder the movement and delivery of humanitarian goods and personnel.
