BE Stories

Sumalee Amarinsangpen

With profound expertise in tuberculosis and HIV disease control, Khun Sumalee, a practised nurse and civil servant for more than 30 years, joined BE Health in 2012 as a skilful programme coordinator. Khun Sumalee ensured peer educators’ empowerment and coordinates their prevention activities in Klong Toey as well as at their workplace. Building long-term collaborations between governmental organisations such as Thailand’s National TB programme, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration or Thailand’s Department of Disease Control and BE Health was also part of Khun Sumalee’s goals for BE Health. Working together and joining all possible efforts to contribute to reducing the incidence of tuberculosis and HIV in Bangkok’s poorest areas has become a reality thanks to Khun Sumalee and her team. Having collaborated more of five years with BE Health, Khun Sumalee enjoys since July 2018 a well deserved retirement while remaining available to lend assistance and provide advice whenever needed by our team members.

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.
