We remain the main provider of HIV care in Dawei, Tanintharyi region, treating people with the disease. Teams are targeting high-risk and vulnerable groups, such as sex workers, men who have sex with men and migrant workers, and supporting the National AIDS Programme (NAP) to decentralise treatment.
In addition, we treat HIV patients co-infected with diseases such as tuberculosis, cytomegalovirus retinitis and hepatitis C.
Due to a worsening political situation and our inability to secure access for international staff to work in the region, medical activities in Wa Special Region 2 are limited.
Despite this, in the remote Pang Yang and Lin Haw townships, where access to healthcare is minimal, we provide outpatient consultations through fixed and mobile clinics and support Ministry of Health vaccination campaigns.
