The study was commissioned by UNESCO Bangkok and aims to increase understanding about the health-seeking behavior of MSM/TG women in Thailand, including perceptions of illness, sources of information on sexual health, types of health services accessed, and constraints and obstacles in accessing healthcare; and to evaluate whether existing sexual health services meet the needs of MSM and TG women in the current Thai context, and develop recommendations for community groups/organizations, policy-makers (in light of Thailand’s revised National AIDS strategy), health service providers and developing partners to improve the health-seeking behaviours of MSM and TG women. The report drew on the experiences of 100 MSM/TG women from Bangkok, Ratchaburi, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Khon Kaen provinces, through interviews and focus group discussions.
