Baan Pang Mayao School: Education and Prevention (E&P)
Baan Pang Mayao School is situated in the hills between Chiang Dao and Phrao. On Wednesday 14th February 2016, Rejoice together with the HIV Healthcare Workers from Chiang Dao Hospital (also known as the “Soo Kwan Doi Luang Chiang Dao” group), were invited to give a presentation on sexual health to a group of some 55 students between the ages of 13 and 16. Many of the students were from the Lahu and Lisu hill tribes.
The British International School in Thailand
In August 2016 Rejoice welcomed a group of 9 medical students from Bangkok Patana School, (a British International School). The students, aged between 17 and 18 years old were hoping to further their studies at university and hopefully major in the medical field. They were staying at the Activity Center at Maekok River Village Resort (MRVR) near Tha Ton on the Myanmar-Thai border in the north of Thailand.
This was a repeat of a similar visit made last year by a group of 6 pre-medical Patana students.
The objective for the school was to introduce their international pre-med students to health care in the rural areas of Thailand, in particular the care of people living with HIV.
