1. BACKGROUND

Raks Thai, a member of CARE International, has been working in Thailand since 1979 in the area of emergency relief, community natural resources management, micro enterprise promotion, education, health and HIV/AIDS prevention and care for affected families. 

 

Raks Thai, as Principal Recipient of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for STAR-2 (2018-2020), implements activities targeting several key affected populations, and builds on the success of the previous STAR-1 (2015-2017) phase. The program focuses on an acceleration to end AIDS and TB in Thailand by harnessing public-sector and civil-society partnerships to improve early and sustained access to diagnosis and treatment among people who inject drugs (“PWID”), migrant workers (“MW”), men who have sex with men (“MSM”), and transgender (“TG”). Intervention strategies emphasize prevention and transmission of HIV (PWID, MSM, TG, and MW), HCV (PWID), and TB (MW) by sustaining intensive behavior change activities, appropriate use of prophylaxis and strategic use of anti-retroviral drugs. The emphasis includes ensuring early and accurate diagnosis of HIV, HCV and TB diseases by improving diagnostic capability, and reducing turn-around time by using rapid HIV testing. 

 

As part of the STAR-2 project, Raks Thai and partners also implement a large-scale health programs for migrant workers from Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos began in 2002 and have continued to the present day. In all this is has been a period of about 18 years. During this period there has been much progress in terms of the proportion of migrants who are fully documented with passport and work permit and who hold the temporary pass while waiting for citizenship confirmation. Both of these groups and their dependent living in Thailand, are eligible to health insurance. Hospitals are also more equipped with translators in the languages of the migrant workers. 

Migrants in Thailand, mostly use mobile phones to communicate with their peers, track news and follow up with their friends and family. 

Still the role of community outreach for migrant populations remain of high importance to the preventive health care of migrant workers. This because most of the migrant populations are not connected with the health information systems of the Ministry of Public Health or the local hospitals. They are also not covered by Thailand extensive village health volunteers due to language and social barriers. 

The recent COVID-19 pandemic that threatened communities around the world, recognized the higher vulnerability of migrant workers living abroad. Not only were emergency testing and treatment mostly geared towards Thai nationals, information on basic behaviors and how/where to reach preventive materials was also scarce among migrants. 

Raks Thai Foundation (“Raks Thai”) is responsible for the ToRunder the Stop TB and AIDS through RRTTR 2018-2020 (“STAR-2”), which is funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (“The Global Fund”).
