    Title: Trauma Care
    Description/subject: "There are no doctors or hospitals for eastern Myanmar’s displaced civilians, many of them living in recently active conflict zones, in a region with one of the highest rates of landmine injuries in the world. To address basic and critical emergency health needs, our partner organization, the Karen Department of Health and Welfare (KDHW), developed a mobile medical system uniquely adapted to the region: A network of tiny clinics now dot eastern Myanmar, with local health workers carrying supplies on their backs, walking for weeks through remote jungles to get medical training and reach patients. Community Partners International trains and equips these Trauma Management Program health workers. See links at right for peer-reviewed publications on our community-based initiatives to address trauma and other critical health needs in Myanmar.".....Best Practices Guidelines on Surgical Response in Disasters and Humanitarian Emergencies...Surgery in Humanitarian Settings (Prehospital and Disaster Medicine, December 2011)... Trauma Care in Conflict Zones (Human Resources for Health, March 2009)... Trauma and Mental Health in eastern Myanmar (Conflict & Health July 2013).

    Title: Thailand: Discrimination Against Burmese Migrants
    Date of publication: 09 June 2009
    Description/subject: On 4th December 2006, Nang Noom Mae Seng, a 37-year old Shan migrant worker from Burma, was left paralysed after being struck by a 300 kilogram mould at her worksite. Her official compensation claim was rejected by Thailand’s SSO. This was because she could not satisfy conditions for access to the WCF laid down in a 2001 SSO circular, requiring that: (1) Workers must possess a passport or alien registration documents; and (2) Their employers must have paid a dividend into the WCF. These conditions make it generally impossible for Burmese migrants to access the WCF.
