Akha Medical Clinic


The Akha Medical Clinic started in 1995 as a drug rehabilitation center for Akha people dealing with addiction to opium. The clinic helped many people find new life in Christ through medical and spiritual support given to them during their withdrawal from the drug. 


In 2002, opium addictions decreased and the meaning of the clinic changed to meet the needs of the villages. Today, the clinic provides basic health care for villages in the area and also focuses on health care for the elderly and supports youth affected by HIV. T-AMF provides monthly medical kits and mobile medical clinics to Akha villages. The mobile clinics provide first aid, basic health care and preventative health care education. Volunteer nurses or medical teams come annually to host medical, optical, dental and/or surgical clinics.
