CHILD PROTECTION & EDUCATION
While Mae Tao Clinic began as a humble health service delivery organisation, it has evolved into an umbrella social services network for refugees, migrant workers, and other displaced Burmese. As a focal point of these activities, child protection is the most rapidly growing area of need.
MTC provides free health care for refugees, migrant workers, and other individuals who make the dangerous journey across the border from Burma to Thailand.
Mae Tao Clinic is viewed as an excellent training facility as it offers skilled trainers, including Burmese doctors, senior medics, and international professionals. Due to the Clinic’s high patient load, it also offers extensive practical training.
