The Gathering Storm: Infectious Diseases and Human Rights in Burma


This report was written to understand the factors that have contributed to Burma’s dire health situation and to the spread of infectious diseases in Burma and across its borders. We also wanted to see if it was possible to deliver international aid to combat infectious diseases in Burma in a manner that would be transparent and accountable, reach those most in need, and promote respect for human rights and international humanitarian law.
