This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the sexual behavior of Thais. It draws primarily upon the 2006 National Sexual Behavioral Survey, which is a nationally representative survey of Thai adults. The emphasis of individual chapters is on risk behaviors, with the chapters analyzing risk behaviors in relation to HIV policy and programs. The book also provides a welcome addition to the literature on HIV policy and programs at an opportune time. While the HIV program in Thailand has increasingly devoted most of its resources to caring for those people who have HIV, several chapters point to the need to focus more attention on the prevention of the disease. Policy options for prevention-based approaches are provided.
