Social Assistance
  • Social assistance programs in Thailand were initiated in 1941.
  • Target groups for social assistance are children, disadvantaged women, seniors, disabled individuals, homeless and beggars, low-income persons, ethnic minority, family in need, and people suffered from natural disaster.
  • Social assistance programs focus on counseling, training, in-kind assistance, and emergency accommodation.
  • Cash benefits are provided to disabled individuals, poor elderly and children whose parents are HIV infected receive cash assistance.
  • The cash assistance programs are not universal. The decision for providing benefits is decentralized to local government, which means that recipients are based on selection by provincial administrator and Tambon Administration Organization (TAO).
  • Monetary assistance has been low since the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security received a small budget compared to other ministries. POOR MINISTRY TAKES CARE OF THE POOR AND UNDER PRIVILEDGE.
