Message from Governor of Bangkok

“We, the BMA, ensure the comprehensive health care for all residents in Bangkok and insist on providing a variety of options for treatment to suit their lifestyles. Everyone will receive proper, equal, and friendly treatment for HIV and TB so that they can trust in our provided treatment and health care advice, including the provision of comprehensive health services for LGBTQ. We also give precedence to universal health care and provide HIV prevention and care services to eliminate the AIDS problem in Bangkok by 2030.”

Chadchart Sittipunt
Governor of Bangkok
Message from Deputy Governor of Bangkok

“We realize the essential need for gender diversity in health services. Therefore, one of the policies, the “BKK Pride Clinic”, has been piloted in the public health service centers and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration affiliated hospitals to create a comprehensive health system for all. This is in line with the aim of Bangkok to end the problem of AIDS by 2030, according to the Declaration of Cooperation in the project to accelerate the goal of 95-95-95 by 2025, and to advance its commitment from the Fast Track Cities meeting in Paris in 2014. Bangkok has focused on carrying out preventive care as well as continuous treatment to cover all of Bangkok’s inhabitants. To highlight the key accomplishments: 1) the expansion of BMA’s migrant-friendly health services, 2) the new generation of migrants is being born HIV-free, and 3) the enhancement of partnerships with communities. We are also considering developing efficient information systems and expanding the cooperation in operations with all sectors for all groups of people to choose a healthy lifestyle.”

Deputy Governor of Bangkok
Messsage from the deputy Permanent Secretary for Bangkok Metropolitan

“Putting people at the center” is a core approach to achieve the 90-90-90 targets by 2020 and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). Bangkok’s response focuses on the people who are at greatest risk and ensures a continuum of prevention, treatment and care services that are appropriate, accessible for Bangkok residents, other Thailand the city’s substantial migrant population. The approach empowers individuals to stay healthy and community groups from key populations to take collective ownership of programmes in order to achieve the most effective HIV response

Community Leadership Messages

“The faster people get tested for HIV, the faster they can get treated and live normal lives. Once you know your status, HIV is like any other chronic disease where you can take medicine every day and learn how to be healthy again.”

Dr. Sopon Mekthon
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Public Health
Department of Disease Control at the Ministry of Public Health

”U=U is the most powerful fact telling us that people living with HIV who are on treatment with suppressed viral load will NOT be able to transmit HIV to anyone, even through sex. People living with HIV must take the courage to use this knowledge to stop the fear, change the attitude, and end self-stigma. People living with HIV must not allow others to destroy their dignity and must be brave enough to live a full-quality life proudly. Ending HIV is imminent with serious actions taken in a concerted effort to address stigma and discrimination.”

Dr. Nittaya Phanuphak
Executive Director
Institute of HIV Research and Innovation

“Properly treated HIV-infected individuals will not be sick or die from HIV and will not transmit HIV to others (U=U), i.e., HIV can now be transformed into a chronic non-infectious disease. If everyone understands this message well, self-stigma and external stigma and discrimination should come to an end. At the same time, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) can prevent almost all new infections. Therefore, with no onward transmission (U=U) and with no new HIV acquisition (PrEP), AIDS can be ended. How fast we can end AIDS depends on how seriously we take and act on the issue. All of us are accountable for it.”

Dr. Praphan Phanuphak
Senior Research and Policy Advocacy Advisor
Institute of HIV Research and Innovation

“We recognize the shared responsibility in accelerating epidemic control to end AIDS and eliminate it as a public health threat in Thailand while reducing related stigma and discrimination. We will continue to support BMA and national efforts to respond in a comprehensive manner that will increase the impact of our collective effort”

Dr. Sanny Northbrook
Director
Division of Global HIV and TB (DGHT), Thailand & Laos

“USAID commends the strong partnership between the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the community-based organizations in Bangkok, including Service Worker in Group (SWING) and Rainbow Sky Association Of Thailand (RSAT) to establish a referral system for key population HIV services to BMA clinics such as PrEP and ARV initiation. These CBOs are critical in delivering Key Population-led Health Services (KPLHS) to those key populations to advance the HIV response in Bangkok and accelerate progress towards ending AIDS by 2030, as articulated in Thailand’s National AIDS Strategy.”

Marie Ahmed
Director
Office Director of Office of Public Health (OPH), USAID Regional Development Mission for Asia

“We will not end AIDS if we do the same old -  think the same old! We need a paradigm shift to keep up with the HIV and AIDS epidemic.”

Surang Janyam
Director
Service Workers in Group Foundation (SWING)

"To achieve our goal in ending AIDS we must embrace inclusiveness. Inclusive strategies reach beyond the general populations to those most deprived and marginalized. Among them are people who use drugs, sex workers, people of all gender orientations, and migrant populations. This must be done with understanding, participation and with the aim to benefit of those most marginalized."

Promboon Panitchpakdi
Executive Director
Raks Thai Foundation

"The global community needs to work together to address inequality in order to bring the world closer to ending AIDS. The marginalization of men who have sex with men, sex workers, people who inject drugs and transgender people is compounded by issues such as gender inequality, ethnicity, poverty and disability. Therefore, intersectionality needs to be better understood in order to better help them overcome prejudice, inequality, and stigma and discrimination."

Danai Linjongrat
Director
Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand

“The world has inscribed history once Thailand and many other countries have killed people due to fear, anger and hate arising from ignorance and not trying to learn. Humans shouldn’t make the world to have this inscription again”
“The way of Harm reduction is the path of peace for Ending AIDS”
