    As Myanmar opens up to the outside world, decades of neglect in areas such as HIV/AIDS treatment can no longer be hidden.
    Of the 120,000 people living with HIV/AIDS in the country, only less than 30,000 are believed to be receiving the medication they need.
    Around 20 thousand people die each year as the disease spreads throughout families.
