Thai Health Promotion Foundation (ThaiHealth) is an autonomous government agency established by the Health Promotion Foundation Act in 2001.
“To inspire, motivate, coordinate, and empower individuals and organizations in all sectors for the enhancement of health promotive capability as well as healthy society and environment to support health promotion movement in Thailand.”
ThaiHealth positions itself as a catalyst, which is mentioned in our mission as “to inspire, motivate, coordinate, and empower.” This allows ThaiHealth to utilize its limited resources in the most effective way.
“Tri-Power Strategy” employed by ThaiHealth was based on Dr. Prawase Wasi’s ‘Triangle that Moves the Mountain.” The immovable ‘Mountain’ symbolizes the extreme difficulty in bringing about social change. This strategy indicates that strengthening three interconnected angles of the triangle or sectors is necessary to address the multi-pronged public health issues.
The three angles of Tri-power Strategy are:
1) Creation of knowledge;
2) Social mobilization;
3) Policy advocacy.
