MAE TAO CLINIC
Medication and Supplies Wish list for Donors
Updated July 2011
The clinic utilizes a comprehensive list of medications that are consistent with the published Burma Border Guidelines. The list below consists of items that are considered of high priority to the clinic and its patients. Most of these items can be purchased in Thailand, and usually at a significantly lower price than in western markets. For this reason, if a monetary donation is possible, it is preferred as it is the most cost effective method. For those wishing to make a direct medication/supplies donation, this list can be used as a guideline. It should be noted that shipping medication/supplies into Thailand is often a complicated process, with many medications denied at customs, and new supplies stamped with a large ‘value added tax’ which must be paid by the clinic in order to receive the shipment. The best method for donating medication/supplies is carrying them on-person when travelling into the country.
Note for Medical Donations:
What do we do with your donation?
First we check it in terms of generic name, shelf life, usefulness for our patients, quality and
quantity. Then we record the selected drugs and distribute them to the appropriate departments.
We try to follow the World Health Organisation guidelines for dealing with donations. For your information, here are some of the key points from these guidelines (for more detailed information go to: www.who.org Essential Drugs and Guidelines for Drug Donation WHO/DAP/96.2)
Maximum benefit to the recipient Respect of wishes and authority of the recipient No double standards in quality Effective communication between donor and recipient
