Rohingya refugees face health crisis

Refugees in Myanmar suffer from poor sanitation and lack of access to professional healthcare.

    Two years since anti-Muslim riots killed dozens of people in Myanmar's Rakhine State, Rohingya refugees face a health crisis. 

    Thousands of ethnic Rohingya Muslims fled their homes to live in makeshift camps that lack proper sanitation, and access   to professional healthcare is highly restricted.
