Academic Service

The ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD) was originally established in 1982 as the ASEAN Training Centre for Primary Health Care Development. It was one of several joint initiatives undertaken by Mahidol University, the Ministry of Public Health, and the Department of Technical and Economic Cooperation (formerly DTEC and now TICA) of the Royal Thai Government that received strong support from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

AIHD is based on a forward-looking and conceptually challenging perspective on human resource development which aims to support the global strategy of “Health for All” through the primary health care approach advocated by WHO, an approach which is valid not only for Thailand but also other ASEAN countries. Today, AIHD has moving forward to become the World Class Academic Institute in Global Health, Health Policy and Development with Inter-sectoral Partnerships.
