The Kachin Women’s Association Thailand, or “KWAT,” was established in 1999 to improve the lives of women and children from the Kachin state of Burma.  Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, KWAT operates several programs to achieve its mission: a Health program, an Anti-Trafficking program, a Migrant Worker program, a Capacity Building program, an Income Generation program, and a Documentation and Research program.  GlobeMed at Dartmouth has funded a Reproductive Health training course for migrant workers and village leaders in Burma and Thailand, and is currently funding the implementation of a medical laboratory in Mai Ja Yang to provide diagnostic screenings for HIV, Malaria, and TB. For more information, visit
