RESEARCH THEME

Universal Health Coverage (UHC)

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) theme has wide range of scope to response to health systems and UHC. For example, our ongoing research issues are the health system in transition review, comparing cross-country health system, assessment of effective coverage and access to health services, intrinsic capacity of ageing population, urban primary health care system in Bangkok, etc.           

Our challenge

Although Thailand is well-known for the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) since 2002, there are rooms for improvement toward the health system that be sustainability, adequacy, fairness, equity, efficiency, quality, responsiveness, and affordability. Carefully designed and implemented health financing policies is our work to address these issues.
