*For travellers:Competent medical advice and treatment may not be available outside Rangoon and Mandalay, and any services provided will not be to the standard of those in the UK/US and other developed countries. Avoid intrusive examinations, including emergency dental work, due to irregular hygiene standards and the danger of infection, particularly by hepatitis B and C and HIV/AIDS. Cash payment is often required prior to receiving medical treatment in Burma. Make sure you have adequate travel health insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad and/or repatriation.

There are no reliable estimates on the number of persons trafficked annually from Myanmar, although a total of 134 trafficking cases were investigated in 2008 involving 303 victims (153 female and 50 male), and 342 traffickers were prosecuted. Fifteen cases were of internal trafficking. Identified cases likely represent a small fraction of the scale of the problem. UNICEF, for example, proposed in 2003 that 10,000 girls are being trafficked every year from Myanmar into Thai brothels alone.

Two Shan rights groups have documented mass rapes involving hundreds of women and girls systematically carried out by Burma’s army; employing rape as a method of war, the Burmese government has tried to violently suppress a local rebellion in the Shan state since the mid-1990s.
