Steve Gumaer of Partners Relief and Development and MNN’s Katey Hearth discuss the problems of medical care in Burma. Access is the primary obstacle, because Burma’s government doesn’t want ethnic minorities to receive care they desperately need.

Partners provides treatment through 8 permanent medical clinics in Karen state and multiple mobile medical clinics throughout the nation. These clinics become ministry centers when medical workers share the hope of Christ with patients, and Partners’ trainers introduce ethnic community health workers to the Gospel.
