MTC SDGs Goal 10: Reduced inequalities

Goal 10. Reduce inequality within and among countries


Mae Tao Clinic is non-discriminatory and cares equally for people of different ethnicities, religion, age and gender. We provide members of marginalized communities with the opportunity to learn medical skills, enrol in education, access birth registration, etc. In Burma, these people may be discriminated due to their ethnicity – in Thailand because they are (undocumented) migrant workers. MTC functions as a safe haven for them and enables communities to lead healthy and productive lives.

SDGs Targets Supported by Mae Tao Clinic

  • By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status
  • Facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies
