Who We Are

Who We Are

HISTORY

1983

The Health & Share Foundation (HSF) originally began as SHARE Thailand, the local branch of international health non-governmental organization SHARE (Services for the Health in Asian and African Regions). SHARE was formed by Japanese doctors and nurses in 1983 to provide medical support to the Indochinese refugee community and promote health and peace worldwide.

1990

As SHARE Thailand, our initial work focused on primary healthcare in the remote northeastern province of Ubon Ratchathani, which shares its border with Cambodia and Lao PDR. In 1990, SHARE Thailand staff worked with village health volunteers to combat diarrhea. However, this work revealed the troubling prevalence of HIV/AIDS. As a result, SHARE Thailand has since shifted its focus to tackle the spread of HIV/AIDS as well as societal issues surrounding the disease.

2012

On February 15th, 2012, SHARE Thailand successfully assembled a board of directors made up of local stakeholders and registered as a foundation with the Ministry of Interior of Thailand, becoming the Health and Share Foundation or HSF (Thai: Muniti Puea Sukapaap laa Gaan Benpan or Moh.Soh.Poh.).

PRESENT

As the Health and Share Foundation, we continue to work on health and social empowerment issues through social outreach, building capacity in local communities, by local communities, for local communities and fostering a robust network of local leaders and organizations. For over 30 years, our organization has worked towards the vision of becoming the leading non-governmental organization for health and rights in Northeast Thailand.
