Thailand has been a hub for migration in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region, particularly for labor migrants from the three neighboring countries namely Myanmar, Cambodia, and Lao PDR. It is estimated that over two million migrants are living and working in Thailand, in addition to some 150,000 displaced persons and asylum seekers who seek refuge in nine temporary shelters along the border. Recognizing the potential impact of migration on the Thai health system, the Ministry of Public Health has included migrants as an important target population in various strategies including the 2007-2011 National AIDS Strategy and the Master Plan on Mobility and HIV, which were formulated in collaboration with relevant sectors.
