Mae Tao Clinic History

The Mae Tao Clinic has gone from being a simple, one-roomed building with only a rice cooker to sterilise instruments, to a large and organised Clinic providing healthcare to over 150,000 displaced people per year. Read about our history here.

Our Patients

The World Health Organisation ranked Burma’s health sector 190 out of 191 countries.  We see patients from all ethnic groups of Burma.

Child Protection

According to a recent report by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), an estimated 200,000 migrant children younger than 17 are in Thailand -– of which less than one third have access to education. One aspect of our Child Protection Programme is to provide access to education to as many children living on the border as possible.
