ICFP2022 National Steering Committee Site Visits
Success of the family planning and reproductive health programs in Thailand is a result of the hard work off, and collaborations between, organizations, governmental and nongovernmental, at all levels.
Since 1970 The Thai government adopted its National Population Policy to support voluntary Family Planning in order to resolve various problems related to the very high rate of population growth at the time which constitutes an important challenge to the economic and social development of Thailand. The Family Health Research Project then became the National Family Planning Program (NFPP) under the auspices of the Ministry of Public Health has the following objectives: reduce the population growth rate to 2.5% per annum by the end of 1976; inform and motivate women about family planning, using methods of mass communication; increase availability of family planning services throughout the country; and to integrate family planning activities with maternal and child health services. Activities include training and supervision of NFPP personnel, research and evaluation, and the coordination of public and private family planning organizations.
During the site visits, one of the selected sites has been part of the Partnership School by the Population and Community Development Association (PDA), Thai NGO that played a key role in poverty reduction and community development through Family Planning. PDA carried out hundreds of projects to improve the quality of life for people in rural and urban areas with activities started in 1974 on the promotion of family planning and primary health care by initiating a volunteer system in villages all over Thailand.
