Link national public health resources to improve disease detection and response

Like other countries, Thailand is grappling with emerging infectious disease outbreaks, environmental safety problems, and natural disasters of increasing frequency and severity. Addressing these challenges requires collaboration and coordination among clinical, disease prevention, and laboratory functions. Thailand has no comprehensive NPHI that encompasses all of these functions, and establishment of such an institute is unlikely in the near future.

With an IANPHI capacity-building grant, Thailand is establishing a Consortium of National Public Health Organizations. The initiative will facilitate timely, coordinated, and science-based management of public health challenges and emergencies.
