FIELD TRIPS
25 - 28 JANUARY 2021

Thailand was the first country outside China to detect the first case of COVID-19 in the country on 13 January 2020. The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), Thailand reported the first imported case of lab-confirmed novel coronavirus from Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. However, since the first detected case reported in Thailand, the relevant stakeholders managed to keep the pandemic under control. The three keys to getting the outbreak under control consist of quick detection, quick medication and personal protection. Our implementation stem from a combination of public health measures, social measures and universal health coverage or UHC.

The PMAC 2021 field trips will be organized virtually during 25-28 January 2021 under the theme “COVID-19: Advancing Towards an Equitable and Healthy World.”
It will share Thailand’s experience in the fight against COVID-19 and how National Universal Health Coverage has played an important role in ensuring that our people continue to have access to medical and health services during this challenging time. The field trips will cover the following issues:

  • The combination of public health measures, social measures and universal health coverage that Thailand implemented to fight COVID-19
  • Who played an important role in our fight against COVID-19 and how?
  • What aspects of the health system were particularly agile and adaptable to combatting an outbreak effectively (e.g. health volunteer programme, social participation and partnerships)?
  • A “New Normal” that the pandemic will usher in, and prompt us to improve our UHC
