Ma Sin Ma Nwe, just twenty six years old, has been receiving treatment at the clinic for two weeks. Like most patients, she has no knowledge or how or when she contracted the disease. Phyu Phyu Thin’s HIV/AIDS clinic in South Dagon, Rangoon, provides more than 200 patients with free treatment and care. There are an estimated 336,000 HIV positive people in Burma, yet only 10% receive treatment in a country where the government spends the least percentage of its GDP on health care of any country in the world.
