The Kingdom of Thailand has contributed USD 18,999,891 to the Global Fund since its inception in 2002.
Kingdom of Thailand has made remarkable successes in its universal health coverage (UHC) policy and health development. Kingdom of Thailand has also eliminated maternal-to-child transmission of HIV, and is the first country with a generalized HIV epidemic to reach this milestone. Since the Declaration of Alma-Ata in 1978, the design of primary health care (PHC) in the Kingdom of Thailand has evolved significantly in response to the population’s evolving health needs. The capacity of successive governments to respond to health transitions and engage the community has shaped the design of Thailand’s PHC.The Global Fund prioritiescomplement the Kingdom of Thailand’s efforts to facilitate UHC for all.
