In this Jan. 17, 2014 photo, ethnic Rohingya people gather around a makeshift pharmacy in The' Chaung village in north of Sittwe, Rakhine state, Myanmar. Small pharmacies dot the road leading to several camps, but only people with money can afford basic medication. An underground group has been ferrying everything from antibiotics to aspirin and diarrhea medicine into the area using business channels, but it's far from enough. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)

Data on Rohingya health is almost nonexistent. However, Rakhine is the nation's second-poorest state and lives have always been at greater risk there. Away from the camps, in isolated and predominantly Muslim northern Rakhine state, the health situation is even worse and reaching a hospital is nearly impossible. (AP Photo/Pyae Phyo Thant Zin)
