In this Sept. 1, 2012 photo, an HIV-infected woman, center, receives medication through an intravenous drip after she fainted, as another HIV patient, right, is also treated in a hut shared with other HIV patients at an HIV/AIDS hospice on the outskirts of Yangon, Myanmar. According to UNAIDS, AIDS kills an estimated 18,000 people a year in Myanmar. The country is one of the hardest places in the world to receive HIV treatment. Myanmar spent less than $1 per person on health in 2008, minus donor money, and ranks among the lowest countries in nearly every category of health care funding. Now, with the dramatic change that has given Myanmar an elected government, there are hopes for improvement, but the country faces a long climb. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)
