One of the most critical fights in the battle against drug-resistant malaria can be found at the border of Thailand and Myanmar (Burma), where high volumes of migrant workers travel between the countries. The emergence of this virulent strain of the disease poses a significant public health risk, as many remote communities have limited access to health services.

  • Diagnostic and treatment services at 14 Myanmar/Thailand border points
  • Malaria diagnosis services, education campaigns, and insecticide-treated mosquito nets previously uncovered regions in Myanmar
  • 2030 target to free both Thailand and Myanmar of all malaria, including the drug-resistant kind

Maung Win's journey of resilience

Maung Win, a migrant worker in a Burmese rubber plantation, fell ill with a persistent cough, low-grade fever, and back pain. Despite temporary relief from a local clinic, his condition worsened over two years, causing financial hardship and severe depression. He eventually found a national tuberculosis program clinic supported by Alight, where he was diagnosed with pulmonary and spinal tuberculosis. Maung Win recovered, regained mobility, and became an advocate for tuberculosis screening, grateful for Alight's support.
