Incredibly poor sanitation in the area make deaths from diarrhea and stomach infections all too common.   Others watch them, early in the morning in an internally displaced persons camp for Rohingya people on the outskirts of Sittwe, Rakhine State, Myanmar. With virtually no doctors around, pharmacists are the only people treating diseases and injuries. There is a government-run hospital, but it is semi-operational and the Rohingya don't trust it.
