BCMF had a busy start to 2013 with patient registration into the program reaching unprecedented numbers. From January to March we enrolled 77 new patients into the program, up from 41 in the last quarter of 2012.
We believe that the increase in patient enrollment is due in part to the increased freedom of movement that has occurred because of the recent political reforms in Burma. This increased freedom of movement has occurred both within Karen State and on the Thai-Burma border.
