Travelers to Burma should take the same health precautions as they would elsewhere in the region. Outside major centers medical facilities can be very basic. Some of the diseases known to exist in Burma include hepatitis A & B, typhoid, tuberculosis, malaria, Japanese encephalitis, diphtheria, dengue fever, tetanus, polio, rabies and HIV/ AIDS.
It is strongly advisable to take adequate preventative measures to minimize your risk of exposure to these and other risks. We strongly recommend that you consult with your doctor at least one month prior to travel for relevant health advice.
