Cyclone Nargis, Myanmar: delta disease surveillance


Myanmar's Ayeyarwady delta region, popularly known as the Irrawady Delta expanse, lies between tributaries from the country’s major rivers which flow into the Bay of Bengal. The area is fertile, densely populated and has a fragile health infrastructure. Water dominates every aspect of the place and lives of the people who live there.
