Nyunt Win is a surgeon and medical trainer working with a mobile clinic in the East Burma jungle. He is also a former soldier of the Karen National Liberation Army.
Nyunt Win’s patients are the displaced Karen people who as well as suffering the effects of years of civil war are without any healthcare whatsoever.
With moves towards political reform and international aid going directly to the government under the guise of development projects, there is an increase in resource exploitation, human rights abuses and displacement of ethnic populations. The plight of Nyunt Win’s patients seems to be more acute than ever.
