A unique phenomenon, the Back Pack Health Worker Team consists of blacklisted Burmese refugees returning to aid others. They reject the safety of political asylum, making illegal trips to Burma in order to smuggle vital emergency healthcare and supplies to thousands of internal refugees, victims of the military junta’s repressive policies and ethnic cleansing programmes. With NGOs and humanitarian agencies severely restricted by the Burmese regime, guerrilla medics have become the unsung heroes of the civil war.
