Naga Self-Administered Zone
|No. of Townships||3|
|Time zone||UTC+6.30 (MMT)|
The Naga Self-Administered Zone (Burmese: နာဂကိုယ်ပိုင်အုပ်ချုပ်ခွင့်ရဒေသ [nàɡa̰ kòbàɪɴ ʔoʊʔtɕʰoʊʔ kʰwɪ̰ɴja̰ dèθa̰]), as stipulated by the 2008 Constitution of Myanmar, is a self-administered zone consisting of three townships in the Sagaing Region: Lahe Township, Leshi Township, and Nanyun Township. Those three townships were administratively part of Hkamti District prior to the creation of the Naga Self-Administered Zone.
In August 2016, an outbreak of measles caused the deaths of 44 children. The outbreak may have been caused by a lack of measles vaccinations due to poor health infrastructure. The Naga people in Myanmar are mainly Christian like their people in India, but one-third of them practice Theravada Buddhism.
