FBR's Jungle School of Medicine

Mission

The Jungle School of Medicine Kawthoolei, also known as JSMK, is an initiative of the Free Burma Rangers, a local, non-profit humanitarian organization established in 1997. Though the FBR had initially set up one-to-two month training programs to train local students as medics to be mobile support teams in conflict zones across Burma, a growing need for health care highlighted a need for a more formal, permanent school that would run year-round and teach about jungle-specific diseases.
