Congratulations to our four doctors at the border for receiving the Award for Individuals and Organisations with High Recognition on Supporting, Protecting and Preserving Human Rights 2020 on 23 February 2021.
This award was given by the Office of the National Human Rights Commission of Thailand as a proof of their excellent performance in the project "Four Doctors at Tak’s Borders," an integrated project for the purpose of health care and preservation of rights of people in border areas. It is a prototype project for sustainable health development which indicates that the efficient method of health care is to take care of people’s health as well as enhance people’s quality of life at the same time.
What the staff of the project "Four Doctors at Tak’s Borders" have always been doing is to take care of all “humans” in need of healthcare and access to rights for better life quality, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, gender, language, economic status and their status as stateless people. Therefore, this event was held for the purpose of expressing unity, appreciating and raising awareness among the public about the importance of humanity since people were born as one and inseparable with human rights.
“Because life is human rights”
For the development of this project, Bangkok Clinic has also written “Lessons Learned from the Four Hospitals in Tak Province (Umphang/Mae Ramat/Tha Song Yang/Phop Phra),” an article based on the doctors’ memos about working in the four hospitals in Tak province which explains issues on international and internal laws relevant to public health. Its purpose is to define the present and determine the future of the four hospitals.
