  • Health System
    Thailand introduced universal coverage reforms in 2001, becoming one of only a handful of lower-middle income countries to do so. Means-tested health care for low income households was replaced by a new more comprehensive insurance scheme — originally known as the 30 baht project, in line with the small co-payment charged for treatment. People joining the scheme receive a gold card which allows them to access services in their health district, and, if necessary, be referred for specialist treatment elsewhere. The bulk of finance comes from public sector.

    The National Development Plan of Health Issue 9 has prioritized the public health as the key public policy. Therefore, there have been strategies of reformation of public health system, legislations and financial measures for facilitating the public health to provide the common people with more healthcare alternatives, and, thus, better access to the healthcare services.
