Public healthcare in Thailand has significantly improved over the past decade, but at-risk children (children living in poverty, children with HIV, children with disabilities and children living in marginalised communities) still struggle to access even basic healthcare services.
Malnutrition is still a prominent health issue for children in Thailand, particularly in migrant communities. Poor nutrition causes delayed physical development, a weakened immune system, fatigue and behavioural difficulties. Children suffering these conditions perform poorly in school, have difficulty socialising and are more prone to sickness and infection.
Your support for our partners’ Health Programmes ensure that thousands of at-risk children in Thailand enjoy access to nourishing food and healthcare services.
- Projects that ensure children receive adequate and equal access to vaccinations, healthcare and medication (including antiretroviral drugs to control HIV infection), and adherence and rehabilitation support
- Projects that provide treatment, therapies and equipment to children and youths with disabilities
- Projects that provide health-related training, including sexual health, hygiene and family planning guidance for young people
- Projects that work to prevent malnutrition in children
