Ms Beau recently contracted Chikungunya and dengue fever at the same time and after months is still dealing with prolonged symptoms. Whilst dengue fever numbers in Mae Sot remained high this year, the outbreak of Chikunguniya, another mosquito borne disease was unexpected and the first time it had happened. This clinic is a lifeline for Burmese villagers who are unable to access health care on the Myanmar side. It is also part of a Malaria eradication program run by the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit and as a result every patient with a fever has their blood tested for malaria.
