The Rejoice team left Chiang Mai for the 4 hour journey to Mai Ai. The first port of call was Mae Ai hospital, a small rural hospital on the main road between Thaton and Fang. Here the team met up with HIV volunteer healthcare workers Deang and Loy.
After a quick roadside lunch it was off to the Mekok River Village Resort to meet Rosie Massingham, Community Project Coordinator to discuss arrangements for the annual visit of pre-medical students from Bankok Patana International school and and also this year Repton School Dubai. The objective for the schools is to introduce their international pre-med students to health care in the rural areas of Thailand, in particular the care of people living with HIV.
