    Thailand has been praised for the success in reducing the number of new diagnosed HIV patients since the first cases of AIDS were identified in 1981. The hard work of related sections as well as the essential support from the royal family showed the huge amount of HIV infected reduction within the country.

    HRH Princess Soamsawali, the niece of HRH Queen Sirikit was the one who showed strong commitment in the area of HIV/AIDS. Numbers of the Red Cross Society Programs on HIV infection were under her patronage, with the main project being launched to reduce AIDS infection from mother to baby.

    The project “Reducing AIDS Infection from Mother to New-Born Baby” has been operated with cooperation from the HIV Netherlands and Australia as Thailand Research Collaboration (HIV NAT) to establish an internationally accepted HIV clinic and laboratory guideline as well as to conduct other critical studies on HIV. The program aimed at underprivileged patients to be able to access proper HIV treatments. (More …)
