Why this research is important

This health promotion and health policy research envisions achieving health benefits for Siriraj personnel, and is to be performed in collaboration with the Fatless Belly Thais network, the Royal College of Physicians of Thailand under the royal patronage of HM the King, and the Diabetes Association of Thailand under the royal patronage of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. It’s focus is on health promotion to Siriraj Hospital’s working-age individuals, and includes setting up a system of interventions and tools as part of a healthy organization development project. The objectives of this project cover not only knowledge provision on changing behavior toward achieving good health to prevent or minimize the risk of chronic non-communicable diseases for staff, but also knowledge transfer and facilitation tools for management and corporate human resources teams, so that they will be able to use the examples, guidelines, and learning media to change the organizational environment.
