Situation

Burmese refugees of all ages cannot access Burmese government-supplied ARVs and support for their HIV+ condition, nor do they qualify for Thai medical support on the other side of the border. As a result they stand a high chance of dying from HIV/AIDS or one of many crippling opportunistic infections we see in our clinic from refugees who've not had access to ARV medication.

Solution

Working with the Mae Tao Clinic, we provide high- quality low-cost HIV medical care (including the supply of ARV medication) and related support for these HIV+ refugees. This project has been operational since 2016 and we currently support 92 people and keep them alive and healthy. The opportunity exists to readily and easily save many more lives.
