Refugees, migrants and displaced people along the Thailand-Burma border: A talk with Dr. Cynthia Maung
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm | Masonic Children’s Hospital

The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility invites you to a talk featuring Dr. Cynthia Maung, Founder and Director of the Mae Tao Clinic, who will be discussing the situation on the Thailand-Burma border and how the lives of the people have been affected by ongoing conflict and poverty. She will include both the situation in the refugee camps and the challenges that marginalized and displaced populations are facing. Dr. Maung will explain how Mae Tao Clinic and partner organizations along the border and in Eastern Burma are providing essential services to vulnerable populations that are often left out of Thai and Burmese government programs, including how our regional network is advocating for human rights and change with Thai and Burmese institutions.
