    YANGON, MYANMAR – Pho Kyaw tends to his wife Khin Soe Win, April 9, 2012 in an HIV shelter. Pho Kyaw is infected himself and used to be a patient of the shelter a year earlier. The couple married just one month earlier. Myanmar (Burma) is battling one of Asia’s worst HIV epidemics and one of the world’s most neglected. The UN estimates that over the last few years between 15,000 – 20,000 people living with HIV die annually in Myanmar, because of lack of access to urgent lifesaving anti-retroviral therapy (ART).

    World Refugee Day

    June 20th is World Refugee Day, established by the United Nations to raise awareness of the 43.7 million refugees and internally displaced people around the world. They are men, women and children forced to flee their homes due to persecution, violence or conflict. You can read more about this campaign and make donations on the the World Refugee Web site created by the UNHCR.

    Above are a few images from Reportage photographers who have focused their attention on refugee crises over the years. Clockwise from top:

    A woman prays while her sister, Lamung Kailing, is treated for injuries sustained from mortar shrapnel December 27, 2012 in Laiza Hospital, Burma.  Lamung Kailing, a mother of two, was working on a watermelon plantation when two Burmese Army mortar grenades landed near her and three other villagers. 

    In 2011, the Burmese army ended a 17-year ceasefire and launched an offensive against rebels in northern Kachin state.  Since then, around 100,000 Kachins have been displaced.
