Role of WHO in the development of international health in ThailandThis paper aimed at documenting the chronological development of international health in Thailand with particular emphasis on the role and contribution of the World Health Organization in health development and international health. The study was made primarily through literary review and written records in the Ministry of Public Health since the time when Western medicine was introduced to the Kingdom during the Region of King Rama III. A brief review of Thailand' s relationship with neighboring countries and donor agencies was also made. The history and background of the collaboration between Royal Thai Government and the World Health Organization was the highlight of this paper. Apart from presenting a comprehensive account of the relationship dated back since 1949 up to 1997 and the trend of changes in its management mechanism, attempts have been made to analyze current collaborative system and problems inherent in actual system functions. Proposal for future international health development was also recommended to be considered by policy makers with a view to create an efficient, flexible and progressive international health management system that is capable for enhancing the Kingdom's role and position in international forum, supporting regional health security and fostering constructive international socio-economic and political relations.
