Progress treating HIV in Myanmar

HIV care in Yangon, Myanmar, our teams have treated more than 17,000 patients and helped build a community where people can receive high-quality treatment in an environment free of judgment. In June 2019, we closed Insein clinic, one of our two HIV centers in Yangon, transferring patients to the care of Myanmar’s National AIDS Program. The clinic’s closure is a milestone that signals Myanmar’s growing capacity to provide patient-centered care and antiretroviral (ARV) treatment for people living with HIV. MSF was the first provider of ARV treatment in Myanmar and for some time ran the largest HIV treatment program in the country.
