Organization Description:
ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD) has three key missions, namely education and training, technical services, and research and development, focusing on participatory community-based health and related program management, with a special emphasis on facilitating the paradigm shift from a “service-oriented” approach to a “development” approach in order to promote “Health for All” through human capacity building and community empowerment. AIHD standard policy is to promote and support research project creation through health mechanism possession for the foundation of the body of knowledge to response the needs of the community, the society, and the nation.
According to WHO SEARO, one-third of the world’s burden of tuberculosis (TB), or about 4.9 million prevalent cases, is found in the World Health Organization (WHO) South-East Asia Region. The disease, which is most common among people in their productive years has a huge economic impact. The region is rising to these enormous challenges. As we have experiences working in the region and globally, we are interested in coordinating and facilitating public health workforce working related to TB to have a platform for sharing experience, receiving effective training and guiding to conduct proper research for development and evaluation as well as training internationally.
In responding to these challenges, in 2014 AIHD conducted a research activity on “An Evaluation Research of Tuberculosis Program to Develop Public Health Education and Community Empowerment Strategies for Prevention and Control of Tuberculosis in Thailand.“ In addition, we are planning to collaborate with JICA and TICA to conduct a training program on TB prevention and control among health professionals in Southeast Asian countries.
