Community participation of cross-border migrants for primary health care in Thailand
This is the first report of the large-scale utilization of migrants as health volunteers in a migrant primary-healthcare program.
Most were assigned to be health communicators; four stated they did
nothing. Volunteers’ attitudes were very positive. Most migrants reported that the volunteers’ work was useful. It was concluded that the migrant health volunteer program did help deal with migrant health problems. However, management of the program should be closely considered for more effective outcomes.
