Country Overview

CDC collaborates with government and non-governmental partners in Thailand, including civil society organizations and multilateral organizations, to discover, evaluate and implement new tools, programs, and policies to combat HIV, sexually transmitted infections, and tuberculosis. CDC works to scale-up and evaluate effective approaches to reach and test key populations–including men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and sex workers – who are at greater risk for HIV infection, as well as treat and retain people living with HIV in treatment in Bangkok and four high burden provinces. CDC aims to: improve HIV testing and case finding strategies; strengthen HIV prevention, treatment, and care services; scale-up enhanced adherence counseling, viral load testing network, and case manager programs; and expand data-driven quality improvement programs.
