Urgent Aid Needed for Myanmar

6 Mar

Medicins San Frontieres/Doctor’s Without Borders recently released a report called “Lives In The Balance,” calling for urgent funding and assistance in helping Myanmar close the devastating gap between people’s need and access to treatment for HIV and TB.


From the their website:
“Tens of thousands of people living with HIV and tuberculosis (TB) in Myanmar are unable to access lifesaving antiretroviral therapy, a dire situation exacerbated by the recent cancellation of a new round of funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.”
