The shelter stays open

The shelter stays open. The Thaketa hospital was not a viable alternative. An anonymous informant says that the Special Hospital (Thaketa) does not treat HIV patients, but gives shelter for people living with HIV to come to Yangon for treatment. After attending clinics, they have to return to their home places and are not allowed to stay there any longer.

Where is the World Health Organisation?

Where is the World Health Organisation when you need them? Why hasn't the World Health Organisation made a statement on the conditions at the shelter and the spread of drug resistant tuberculosis? If there is evidence that conditions at the shelter spread drug resistant tuberculosis then WHO should say so. If there is no evidence then WHO should make a statement to that effect. It is time to show a bit of moral courage here.

If officials are worried about drug resistant tuberculosis then they can support the shelter with provision of resources to prevent drug resistant TB from developing. Are conditions at the Thaketa facility any better? … The IAS runs lucrative conferences but has little technical clout.
