The Thai-Myanmar border


Based in Mae Sot on the Thai-Myanmar border, the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU) studies the epidemiology, treatment and prevention of multi-drug resistant malaria and provides healthcare to anyone in need. Clients are largely ethnic Karen and other marginalised populations living in refugee camps and migrant communities. The unit was set up in 1986 and is supported by the Wellcome Trust and the UK’s Department for International Development.
