TICA : Thailand International Cooperation Agency

is a national focal point for Thailand’s international development cooperation. TICA was established in 2004 to realize Thailand’s aspiration to be a contributor of development cooperation. Believing that global challenges are best addressed by international cooperation and global partnership, today we continue to strengthen our contribution to achieve global development agenda through various capacity-building and human resources development programmes. In response to the recent changes in the global landscape of development cooperation, especially through the concept of South-South and Triangular Cooperation, TICA continues to realign our focuses in order to deliver Thailand’s commitment to be a relevant partner in global agendas including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD), Mahidol University

ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD), Mahidol University was established in 1982 as the ASEAN Training Centre for Primary Health Care Development. It was a joint effort of Mahidol University, the Ministry of Public Health and the Department of Technical and Economic Cooperation (DTEC, now TICA) of the Royal Thai Government, with strong support from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). AIHD’s work bases on a forward-looking and conceptually challenging perspective on human resource development which aims at supporting global strategy of “Health for All” through the primary health care approach as advocated by WHO.

AITC : Annual International Training Course

was initiated in 1991 as a framework in providing short-term training for developing partners. Today, the AITC remains one of TICA’s flagship programmes. It offers not only a training experience, but also a platform in exchanging ideas and establishing professional network among participants from across the developing world. Aiming at sharing Thailand’s best practices and experience to the world, the AITC training courses focus on development topics of our expertise currently categorized under five themes namely; “Sufficiency

Economy Philosophy” or SEP, Food Security, Public Health, Climate Change, and Other topics related to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

AITC Theme : Public Health

This training course falls under the AITC theme – “Public Health”. We believe that health is a very important component for economic and social development, national security, regional and global stability. In the post 2015 context, health has been increasingly recognized as a key contributor in development as good health is one of the fundamental building blocks of society and sustainable development. From improved quality to inclusive healthcare system, Thailand has been sharing our experience and lesson-learned with developing partners on the road to achieve health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
