PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Thailand is currently facing several significant health issues, many of which exist due to its geography, socioeconomic challenges, and limited healthcare infrastructure.

Challenges include managing both infectious and non-communicable diseases, as well as rising environmental health issues. In addition to this, access to healthcare services remains uneven, particularly in rural areas. Our Health Promotion projects are vital for raising awareness, improving health education and building community capacity to provide emergency response.

CONTRIBUTE TO GLOBAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING!

We have a range of partners in Thailand, from local schools to rehabilitation centres and hospitals. Through these partnerships, we are continuously working to improve community health, which is something you will be involved in as part of our Health Promotion Challenge.
