He never finished medical school, but for the villagers of Rael in Cambodia's remote countryside, Chek Cheoum is a lifesaver. He only charges what his patients can afford, and is always nearby. With 0.2 doctors for every 1,000 people, Cambodia has one of the world's lowest ratios, forcing many to rely on unlicensed physicians like Cheoum. But when a village suffered a widespread HIV outbreak after contaminated needles were used on patients, the government banned all unlicensed medics. 101 East uncovers Cambodia's failed healthcare system and its reliance on doctors with no licence to heal. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

As scandals involving misbehaving monks rock the nation, 101 East examines if Thailand can save its moral soul. Nehn Kham was once a hugely popular monk preaching in Thailand's poor northeast region. Today, he is an international fugitive with a $32m fortune that he amassed through fraud. Buddhists around the world were shocked when footage emerged of the monk on a private plane, clutching a Louis Vuitton bag and fidgeting with high-end gadgets. His extravagance put him atop a long list of misbehaving monks making headlines in Thailand for fist fights, smuggling drugs, selling guns, hiding pornography and more. In response, Thailand's military junta has set up a 24-hour hotline for the public to report rule-breaking monks. But the junta is also proposing new laws to criminalise breaking any Buddhist rule - a move some fear is an over-reaction that would threaten religious freedom. 101 East exclusively reveals where Thailand's infamous jet-setting monk has been hiding, and meets those on a mission to save the country's moral soul.

There are more than 200,000 foreign domestic workers in Singapore. Under the law, they have to be at least 23 years old. But one NGO says it is seeing more and more minors at its shelter for abused maids. Most of these girls come from Myanmar, where investigations reveal a web of deceit and corruption in the recruitment process, and immigration officials are regularly bribed to doctor birthdates on travel documents. Because of their youth, the girls are often easy targets for abusive employers and sexual predators. 101 East investigates.

The cliffs of Tojinbo on the coast of the Sea of Japan are famous for their rugged beauty. But this place also has a dark side -- many Japanese come here to end their lives by throwing themselves onto the jagged rocks and crashing waves. Japan's suicide rate is one of the highest in the world -- more than 30,000 people kill themselves every year. We ask why so many Japanese, young and old, see suicide as the only option?

Tourists vacationing in Thailand are offered an array of animal attractions. They can visit a tiger temple, watch a performing monkey show or ride an elephant. What guides don’t tell visitors are that many of these animals have been abused. Thailand recently introduced laws to protect animals born in captivity. But critics claim they will do little to prevent mistreatment in this multi-million dollar entertainment industry. 101 East investigates the fight to save Thailand’s captive animals from lives of abuse.
