Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009)

Financing Healthcare for Migrants: A Case Study from Thailand 2009. IOM and WHO (2009) Thailand has a relatively well established public health system featuring the launch of universal health care coverage in 2002. The development of the public health system and healthcare financing has contributed significantly to an equitable service provision and financial contribution of the health care system. However, in the absence of official Thai status, stateless / displaced persons are excluded from the Universal Health Coverage Scheme (UC), despite the fact that they were previously covered by the Low Income or Health Card Scheme prior to the introduction of the UC policy.

Access to HIV Testing for Sex Workers in Bangkok, Thailand 2010: A High Prevalence of HIV among Street Based Sex Workers. Nhurod P, Bollen L, Smutraprapoot P, et al (2010)

Access to HIV Testing for Sex Workers in Bangkok, Thailand 2010: A High Prevalence of HIV among Street Based Sex Workers. Nhurod P, Bollen L, Smutraprapoot P, et al (2010) We offered voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) for HIV and syphili to women attending three public sexually transmitted infection (STI) clinics in Bangkok, Thailand from May 2004 to June 2006. The testing was performed at either one of three STI clinics in Bangkok or at mobile VCT in the same area as the outreach activity. Six-hundred eighty-four women were tested. The HIV prevalences among the street-based sex workers, brothel-based sex workers and other women in these areas not reporting sex work who tested in the clinics were 45.8% (38/83), 4.2% (10/236) and 9.9% (28/284), respectively.

Reports of Evidence Planting by Police among A Community Based Sample of IDUs in Bangkok, Thailand. Fairbairn N, Kaplan K, Hayashi K, et al (2009)

Reports of Evidence Planting by Police among a Community Based Sample of IDUs in Bangkok, Thailand. Fairbairn N, Kaplan K, Hayashi K, et al (2009) Drug policy in Thailand has relied heavily on law enforcement-based approaches. Qualitative reports indicate that police in Thailand have resorted to planting drugs on suspected drug users to extort money or provide grounds for arrest. The present study sought to describe the prevalence and factors associated with this form of evidence planting by police among injection drug users (IDU) in Bangkok.

Expanding the Reach of Harm Reduction in Thailand: Experiences with a Drug User-Run Drop-in Centre. Kerr T, Hayashia K, Fairbairna N, et al (2009)

Expanding the Reach of Harm Reduction in Thailand: Experiences with a Drug User-Run Drop-in Centre. Kerr T, Hayashia K, Fairbairna N, et al (2009) Despite an ongoing epidemic of HIV among Thai people who inject drugs (IDU), Thailand has failed to implement essential harm reduction programmes. In response, a drug user-led harm reduction centre opened in 2004 in an effort to expand reduction programming in Thailand. Methods: We examined experiences with the Mitsampan Harm Reduction Centre (MSHRC) among IDU participating in the Mitsampan Community Research Project (Bangkok). Multivariate logistic regression was used to identify factors associated with MSHRC use. We also examined services used at and barriers to the MSHRC

Drug Use Patterns among Thai Illicit Drug Injectors Amidst Increased Police Presence. Werb D, Hayashi K, Fairbairn N, et al (2009)

Drug Use Patterns among Thai Illicit Drug Injectors amidst Increased Police Presence. Werb D, Hayashi K, Fairbairn N, et al (2009) Thailand has traditionally pursued an aggressive enforcement-based anti-illicit drug policy in an effort to make the country "drug-free." In light of this ongoing approach, we sought to assess impacts of enforcement on drug use behaviors among a cohort of injection drug users (IDU) in Thailand. We examined drug use patterns among IDU participating in a cross-sectional study conducted in Bangkok (n = 252). Participants were asked to provide data regarding patterns of drug use in the previous six months, including types of drugs consumed, method of consumption, frequency of use, and weekly income spent on drugs.

Difficulty Accessing Syringes and Syringe Borrowing among Injection Drug Users in Bangkok, Thailand. Kerr T, Fairbairh N, Hayashi K, et al (2009)

Difficulty Accessing Syringes and Syringe Borrowing among Injection Drug Users in Bangkok, Thailand. Kerr T, Fairbairh N, Hayashi K, et al (2009) Thailand’s longstanding HIV epidemic among injection drug users (IDU) has been attributed, in part, to the Thai government’s unwillingness to implement evidence-based HIV prevention interventions. This study was undertaken to examine risk factors for syringe borrowing among a community-recruited sample ofThai IDU.

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004)

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004) Thailand was one of the most severely affected countries during the early stage of the AIDS pandemic. However, the country openly addressed the problem and implemented strict and continuous preventive measures. These measures have been well recognized for their effectiveness in reducing the cumulative number of HIV infections from the previously estimated number of 6-8 million infected by the year 2000 to a more recent computerized projection of 1 million infected people. The number of new infections is estimated to be around 25,000 per year-down from the estimated annual figure of over 100,000 persons. The success of Thailandûs HIV-prevention-and-control campaigns has been internationally acknowledged.

Parents Providing Care to Adult Sons and Daughters with HIV/AIDS in Thailand. UNAIDS (2001)

Parents Providing Care to Adult Sons and Daughters with HIV/AIDS in Thailand. UNAIDS (2001) As the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic contin- ues, there is increasing recognition that more attention and resources need to be focused on those indirectly affected by the epidemic. Uninfected family members and sig- nificant others can be affected emotionally, economically, socially and physically by the illness and death of a person with AIDS. This is particularly true for persons who serve as caregivers. Much attention has been given to AIDS orphans— the children left behind by parents who have died from AIDS.

An Evaluation of UNICEF's Policy Response to HIV/AIDS in the Nineties. Kruse SE and Forss K (2001) The HIV/AIDS epidemic entered Myanmar relatively late, but since then it has spread rapidly. The Government’s National AIDS Programme recently reported a total of 33,553 HIV positive cases (among blood donors and suspected hospital patients) and 4,598 AIDS patients (Ministry of Health, 2001). A total of 1,973 deaths were reported from hospitals in different parts of the nation. Most of the AIDS patients and HIV positive cases were in the age group 20 – 40 years of age, with a male to female ratio of six to one.
