He knows how to make people listen to him, how to pass on his knowledge, how to encourage the community to protect themselves against TB and HIV and how to urge them to be screened. “BE Health is like a stage inviting you to share your voice and bringing communities together to fight against serious health issues”. A skilled, dynamic and talented concierge at Siam Kempinski Hotel in Bangkok, Khun Pongsak enjoys ensuring his guests have a memorable stay each and every time at the hotel and in his hometown. He applies his professional competence and dedication also in his work as a BE peer health educator. He strongly believes that people can only live peacefully and happily together by helping each other. “Our soul is for the benefit of mankind” states Pongsak. His commitment to caring for his people stands in the centre of his role as a peer health educator. Health care professionals and TB patients from the Klong Toey community don’t forget him easily, as he builds genuine relationships with his patients, encouraging them to keep up with their long treatments.
