ASEAN Institute for Health Development

    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 is based on a forward-looking and conceptually  challenging perspective on human resource development   which aims to support the global strategy of  “Health for All” through the primary health care approach advocated by WHO, an approach which is valid not only for Thailand but also other ASEAN countries.

     AIHD has three key missions,namely education and training,technical services,and research and development, focusing on participatory community-based health and related program management, with a special emphasis  on facilitating the paradigm shift from a  “service-oriented”  approach to a “development” approach in order to promote “Health for All” through human capacity building and community empowerment.
