Current Projects

HEALTH AND RIGHTS PROMOTION PROJECT (HRPP)
2019 – PRESENT

The Health and Rights Promotion Project (HRPP) seeks to address the inequitable development of stateless individuals migrating into northeastern Thailand. As a result of their statelessness, these individuals face limitations in exercising basic human rights, employment, education, ownership, and access to health and legal services. This project aims to improve the health and access to basic rights of vulnerable families and children, elevating their quality of life.

BORDER COMMUNITY MODEL FOR FAMILY AND CHILDHOOD HEALTH DEVELOPMENT
2018 – PRESENT

This project aims to develop a community model for promoting health & well-being among vulnerable children & youths residing in border areas of northeastern Thailand. Using an ecosystem approach, the project implements activities that target the family unit, neighborhoods, schools, and relevant authorities.

HIV/AIDS PREVENTION AND CARE PROJECT
1994 – PRESENT

The HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project (or AIDS Project) evolved out of an exploratory program to learn the status of HIV infection in northeastern Thailand and grew to encompass several outreach activities, namely disseminating health education to prevent further HIV infections, overcoming discrimination against People Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and empowering stakeholders to lead PLWHA group activities for HIV prevention and awareness.

Past Projects

Establishment of the Health and Share Foundation | 2012

SHARE Thailand successfully registered as a Thai foundation with the Ministry of Interior of Thailand, rechristened as the Health and Share Foundation or HSF.

AIDS Project Phase 3 | 2003

The AIDS Project began with assessing the HIV infection situation in northeastern Thailand, with the objective of preventing further infections, deepening awareness of HIV/AIDS, and rallying the community in support of its PLWHA members. We offered AIDS education in schools and universities to overcome misconceptions and organize hospital group meetings for HIV-positive mothers.

AIDS Project Phase 1 | 1994

The AIDS Project began with assessing the HIV infection situation in northeastern Thailand, with the objective of preventing further infections, deepening awareness of HIV/AIDS, and rallying the community in support of its PLWHA members. We offered AIDS education in schools and universities to overcome misconceptions and organize hospital group meetings for HIV-positive mothers.

2008 | AIDS Project Phase 4

After stakeholders in previous project areas became self-sufficient, SHARE Thailand relocated its operational headquarters to Khemarat district, Ubon Ratchathani province. Khemarat had no NGO presence and is home to several vulnerable groups: migrant workers, MSM (Men who have Sex with Men), youths, and (as of 2008) the highest number of PLWHA among the province’s eight border districts.

1999 | AIDS Project Phase 2

We worked with local communities as well as PLWHA groups to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and reduce HIV stigma. SHARE staff offered training workshops for village leaders, housewives, and teachers on patient care, counseling, and safe sex, while organizing hospital activities for PLWHA members as well as home visits with HIV-positive individuals.

Village Health Promotion Outreach

Rural and border communities in Thailand are often marked by inequitable access to public services and resources necessary to improve their health, nutrition, and overall quality of life. As SHARE Thailand, we initiated several interventions in the northeastern Thai provinces of Yasothon and Ubon Ratchathani designed to empower local villages with health education, health checks, and programs that encouraged villagers to participate in their own health.

Cambodian Community Health Project | 1993

SHARE Thailand hosted two groups of approximately 30 Cambodian nurses and birth assistants who studied community health activities in Thailand.

Donmoak Village Health Developing Project | 1992

Our project in Donmoak village, Ubon Ratchathani province aimed to promote cleaner living, conducting health checks, supporting neighborhood cleanups with school children, and making waste bins with health volunteers.

Kham Khuean Kaeo Village Child Nutrition Project | 1991

In Kham Khuean Kaeo village, Yasothon province, we extended financial support to facilities supporting disadvantaged children who were unable to afford middle school. Our funding went to dormitories, life counseling, as well as growing rice and raising livestock.

1993 | Si Kaeo Village Health Check Project

Our health volunteer leaders and health center staff conducted biannual health checks in Si Kaeo village, Yasothon province.

1992 | Khanthakwian Village Child Nutrition Project

To improve living conditions in Khanthakwian village, Ubon Ratchathani province, we offered health education to primary school children and invited volunteers to help with bodyweight measurements and preparing supplementary lunches for children under five at health centers.

1990 | Si Kaeo Village Anti-diarrhea Project

In Si Kaeo village, Yasothon province, health volunteers joined discussions about the causes of diarrhea and raised awareness of the problem through skits and poster contests. With greater awareness of the problem, villagers built wells and toilets and were able to prevent diarrhea on their own within three years.

1983 – 1985
Refugee Primary Care

Because of Thailand’s relative political stability in the late 1970s, there was an influx of refugees from surrounding countries. In refugee camps near the Cambodian border, SHARE Thailand physicians helped with mobile X-ray screenings offered by the Japan Volunteer Center (JVC).
