4 billion baht will be allocated on teen HIV and STD prevention in Thailand

In order to facilitate people’s ability to learn more about HIV and AIDS, request a free test, and request medication, Ratchada announced that the Division of AIDS and STDs would establish a formal account on the Line application called “Stand by you.” The Thai government has set aside a budget of roughly 4 million baht to address the issue since it believes that children in Thailand are more susceptible to STDs and HIV infection than adults.Teenagers would consequently become more knowledgeable about the dangers posed by the diseases.

According to Ratchada, there were 520,000 HIV cases in Thailand last year, and 6,500 more are expected this year. According to Ratchada Thanadirek, the PM Office’s deputy spokeswoman, gonorrhea and HIV infections are more common in people between the ages of 15 and 24. The majority of these cases will impact people between the ages of 15 and 24.

According to Ratchada, the government wants to halt HIV transmission by 2030. They believed that the official Line account would make HIV testing and information about HIV and Aids more widely available, especially to young people. Ratchada claims that a 3.9 billion baht budget was allocated by the government for the National Health Security Office to provide care for those who have HIV and AIDS. The federal government aims to stress the benefits of condom use.
