Ethnic People Flock to Rangoon for Healthcare

28 Nov 2012

RANGOON—Hundreds of ethnic people are descending on Rangoon every day 
to seek medical treatment because of the dire healthcare on offer in their home states.

Taking buses from Moulmein to Burma’s commercial hub, ethnic Mon patients 
take refuge at one of the 30 or so monasteries in Bahan Township. Despite 
the higher cost of healthcare, they are amongst the many rural people still 
happy to make the journey because of the better standard of medical treatment on offer.
