BCMF strongly believes that everyone has a right to healthcare and we strive to provide this opportunity to people from Burma regardless of age, sex, race, religion or legal status. BCMF does not have any set criteria for admission to the program; however, funding constraints often mean that we cannot accept patients who have come to us late in their illness and who have a poor chance of survival. Nevertheless, BCMF aims to treat as many patients as we can who seek our help. We now have two additional auxiliary programs, the Burma Adult Medical Fund (BAMF) and the Burma Women Medical Fund (BWMF). Below is a breakdown of our patients by fund. For detailed information on each program please click the program name.
* Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF): The BCMF program facilitates the treatment of children (under 18) with serious medical conditions who need to be referred to medical facilities in Chiang Mai (or Bangkok).
* Burma Adult Medical Fund (BAMF): BAMF was established to treat special adult cases that will respond well to surgery or treatment.
* Burma Women Medical Fund (BMWF): BWMF aims to fund the surgical and support costs involved in common gynaecological conditions such as uterine prolapse and uterine myoma (fibroids). These conditions can be corrected at a relatively low cost at the local Thai hospital in Mae Sot.
