Myitkyina, Kachin State, Myanmar (Burma)

Mung Hkawng Lahpai, 21, a recovering drug addict in his first week of withdrawal from heroin use after a 6 year addiction, is chained to a bed to prevent him trying to escape, following a previous attempt, at a Kachin Baptist Convention drug rehabilitation facility. Mung Hkawng Lahpai died of an overdose after escaping a few weeks after this photo was taken. Kachin state, where most of Myanmar's jade comes from, has some of the highest rates of heroin use and HIV infection in Myanmar.
