Nee Paen Din Program on TNN2: Health services for migrant workers

In this episode, Khun Surat Homsut, senior staff, and Ms. Thida Oo, cross-border field coordinator, both of Raks Thai Foundation, described the delivery of health services for non-Thai migrants working in Thailand. This program was broadcast on February 27, 2019, and it shows the living and working conditions of migrant laborers in the industrial sector. Migrants who legally enter Thailand are covered by health insurance and can access standard health care when needed. However, there remain many migrants who did not enter Thailand legally and, thus, who are not covered by health insurance, either through the Ministry of Public Health, or the Social Security system.
