AIHD library was established in 1985 as the Library of ASEAN Training Center for Primary Health Care Development (ATC/PHC). On 9th July 1987, Mahidol University Council voted to promote the ATC/PHC to full institute status with rights and privileges equivalent to other institutes and faculties in Mahidol University.

Since then, the library was upgraded to become the Library of ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD). The library is located on the 2nd floor of the Administration Building, with 147.75 square meters of space. Its mission is to provide academic services to support the institution's mission that is divided to 3 areas:

  1. Provide transformative education for graduates to become a proficient leader in health system management and sustainability
  2. Enhance the capacity of the public health workforce in relation to sustainable health development
  3. Develop innovative research for sustainable health.

The library offers a large amount of information, publications and online databases to complete the coverage of the major disciplines and related disciplines required to support the integrated learning of various sciences. In addition, the library also has a strict acquisition process so that it has quality textbooks, by striving to be a leading library in primary health and the health service system in ASEAN region.

Currently, the library has complete information and has a work system to connect to the library networks both inside and outside the university.
