This chapter reviews Thailand's response to its HIV epidemic. The Thai experience has provided several lessons on how the health system and health policy need to respond to the dynamic of HIV epidemics. The country's capacity to collect, analyse, and disseminate information and translate this information into policy and programme design, as well as the skill and capacity to influence policy-makers, has been a major factor in any effective health policy response to HIV.

Keywords:   health policy, HIV epidemic, information, policy design, HIV infection
