Starting point: tobacco control In 1997 : Thailand Successes in Enacting law Policy development including tax increases (Activities which are not budget dependent, need lobbying processes and political will) (Activities which are not budget dependent, need lobbying processes and political will)
2 Steps Approach Movement for tobacco tax increase (1988 - 1993) Movement for dedicated tax (1995 - 2001)
Thailand : before 2000 For effective Health Promotion We need 1. Adequate and regular funding source. 2. More flexible means to allocate budget. 3. More efficient health promotion strategy influenced by financial measure
Why have a health promotion foundation? As an advocate for tobacco control and for other aspects of health promotion As a bridge and facilitator - across government departments - Between sectors - Between NGOs and governments As an innovator Rob Moodie VicHealth
20 Our rationale 1. The government is making over 2,750 million US$ per year from alcohol and tobacco taxes. Yet provided only less than 3 million US$ (=0.1%) for alcohol, tobacco control and health promotion combine Yet provided only less than 3 million US$ (=0.1%) for alcohol, tobacco control and health promotion combine
2. The World Bank recommend countries to control alcohol and tobacco for health as well as for economic gain
3. We are not asking money from the government, 3. We are not asking money from the government, but from the tobaccoand alcohol companies but from the tobaccoand alcohol companies
4. This money will be use to support health promotion, alcohol and tobacco control, the result will be improved health status for Thais, the result will be improved health status for Thais, as well as decrease government health care expenditure as well as decrease government health care expenditure
Financing mechanism and Infrastructure to fund Tobacco control Alcohol control Traffic accident prevention If we succeed in reducing health care expenditure in these three areas by 10% Thailand would save 500 million US$ per year If we succeed in reducing health care expenditure in these three areas by 10% Thailand would save 500 million US$ per year
5. In passing this legislation, the government will be praised by the public to have acted responsively and wisely in the handling of “Sin Tax” the government will be praised by the public to have acted responsively and wisely in the handling of “Sin Tax”
Key decision The Ministry of Health : would like the new agency to be within the Ministry of Health’s system and jurisdiction The Ministry of Finance : would like the funding to come from the regular budget
Why an autonomous health promotion foundation? Why an autonomous health promotion foundation? 1. The nature of the work (Health Promotion) 1. The nature of the work (Health Promotion) Development vs Established services Development vs Established services Project based vs Service based Project based vs Service based Herizontal coordination vs Vertical implementation Herizontal coordination vs Vertical implementation 2. Success is based on innovation and collaboration 2. Success is based on innovation and collaboration 3. Not achievable through bureaucrative 3. Not achievable through bureaucrative management with this little additional budget management with this little additional budget (+ 2 %) (+ 2 %) 4. Needs flexible management for easier synergistic act among sectors 4. Needs flexible management for easier synergistic act among sectors
Why a dedicated form of funding? 1. Health promotion needs regular and sustainable budget 2. Less susceptible to diversion of funding for other purposes.
Health Promotion Foundation Act 2001 -Setting up of Health Promotion Office -Funding health promotion related activities with 2% surcharge of alcohol and cigarette taxes. - Annual budget = 75 m US $ ( = 2 % of MOPH budget) -An autonomous state agency.

Alcohol policy outcomes Before the establishment of ThaiHealth and triangle network There were 6 national alcohol control policies in 50 years national alcohol policies (1950- 2002) 1.Alcohol act 1950 2.Limited sale time (1961) 3.Prohibit sale to intoxicated person (1966) 4.Drunk driving (1979) 5.Warning message(19p97) 6.Free trade (1999) After the establishment of ThaiHealth and triangle network There are 9 national alcohol control policies in 4 years national alcohol policies (2003- 2007) 1.Prohibit sale for under 18 (2003) 2.Partial ad ban (2003) 3.Establishing the national alcohol control committee (2003) 4.Prohibit sale in school (2004) 5.Warning message in outdoor billboard and movies (2004) 6.Prohibit sale in fuel station (2005) 7.Increase warning messages (2005) 8.Increase excise tax (2005) 9.Alcohol control act (2006 – 2007) 8 yrs per 1 policy 2 policies per 1 year
Lesson learned Three main factors were discussed for ThaiHealth’s early achievement in Health promotion; these are flexibility, financial security effective strategy and approach ‘supplementary rather than replacement’ ‘supplementary rather than replacement’
Current limitation and challenge of ThaiHealth of ThaiHealth - a very new concept of governance & operation operation - lack of understanding by some politician, expect quick result, want more political receptive expect quick result, want more political receptive -perceived by some policy maker as “easy money” ‘overlapping role’ “easy money” ‘overlapping role’ - still in learning curve: in the process of building.. - health promotion manager, advocator & expertise - health promotion manager, advocator & expertise - proactive innovative catalytic management - social immunity, moving to be a ‘social institution’

Conclusion Lessions learned from ThaiHealth 1. The control of tobacco, alcohol and other risk factors need adequate and continuous funding, attempt should be made to secure a sustainable funding sources, preferably by legislation.
2. Obtaining a dedicated tax for health promotion is more appealing to policy maker than for tobacco control or one specific risk control only
3. The dedicated tax and the autonomy of the health promotion agency should be legislated, to better guard the system from political interferences and for maximum efficiency of the foundation.
4. Some international supports for establishment of HPF are available, but need more initiative support but need more initiative support from WHO etc. from WHO etc.
