People come from many miles away and often from inside Burma to get treatment at the Mae Tao Clinic which lies near the Thai-Burma border in Mae Sot, Thailand. 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.
