BE Health celebrates World TB Day in Bangkok

BE Health celebrates World TB Day in Bangkok

A railway station is like a beating heart in town. In Bangkok, thousands of people use Hua Lamphong train station daily. This is the reason why BE Health’s team set up their booth on such a busy crossroads on World TB Day, together with Thailand’s BMA. Enticing people is key to making them aware that tuberculosis is still a major health problem in the country and city. However, people are not aware of the disease, do not recognise the symptoms, nor do they know that everyone has access to TB treatment. But how do you make busy commuters knowledgeable about the disease and its prevention in a minimum of time? Like giving them a quizz, ask them to read a short script about the disease and question them afterwards. A small present rewarding an accurate response will make the exercise worthwhile!

 

A few days prior to this event and in the presence of Dr Amnuay Gajeena, Director General of the Department of Disease Control, as well as the Director of Thailand’s National TB Programme and the Vice President of BMA Health Department, BE Health and Siam Kempinski Hotel hosted the World TB Day Press Event, focusing on raising awareness and advocating better TB control. More than 120 people attended the meeting.

A message about BE Health

After seven years of inspiring challenges and exciting activity, and thanks to all our donors, we are proud of having reached tangible and successful outcomes.

We though want to achieve more. And while we look back with gratitude to see how far we’ve come, we are happy to inform you that we now are in the process of developing a new programme to extend our mission. We wish that more hotels in all regions could actively participate in spreading health and increase their positive impact in local communities.

The fundamental change in BE Health’s mission and structure involves the end of BE Health's current operations in Bangkok and Djibouti. However, we will be active soon again.

We will update the content of this website to share as soon as possible our new mission and objectives with you. In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your understanding.
