In-patient ward at the Mae Tao Clinic on the Thai-Burma border where often people have to share beds. Approximately 300 people per day receive free healthcare at the clinic, mostly being migrant workers and refugees who have fled across the border from Burma (Myanmar) to escape the desperate poverty and persecution from the ruling military regime. Healthcare is all but non-existent in Burma, where less than 2% of the GDP is spent on healthcare and education combined.
