Country Report
The United Nations has warned that complacency and a lack of political commitment could trigger a resurgence of AIDS in Thailand, which has so far been the most successful countries in the world at tackling the spread of the disease. New HIV infection rates in Thailand have fallen from a peak of 143,000 a year in 1991 to 19,000 in 2003, mostly as a result of mass public information campaigns. In addition to that, the article also presents information on deadly bird flu virus in poultry in Thailand.
