The Mae Tao Clinic (MTC) is a health service provider and training centre, established to contribute and promote accessible quality health care among displaced Burmese and ethnic people along the Thai-Burma border. In addition to the comprehensive services provided at its onsite facilities, MTC also promotes general health through partnerships with other community based organisations. We work together to implement and advocate for social and legal services, as well as access to education for people living along the border.
The future vision for MTC is to continue providing quality health and social services. MTC is endeavouring to further promote health education, and improve access to and utilisation of its health services. MTC will also advocate for improved access to quality education for migrant children in the Mae Sot area and work to strengthen the child rights and child protection network among local and international human rights institutions. MTC serves a broader role as a community centre and centre for advocacy with respect to issues related to Burma and the displaced community.
