The M-FUND prepares its expansion to new areas in Thailand
Driven by its early success in Tak province, the M-FUND prepares its expansion to new areas in Thailand, to offer to more migrants in need access to a premium health coverage with an affordable contribution. From October 16-19, we conducted an assessment of needs and interest among migrants in other Thai provinces: Samut Sakorn and Chonburi. With the help of our partner Raks Thai Foundation, we conducted Focus Group Discussions among migrants in these areas. These FGD confirmed that many migrants are not covered by protection schemes. Most showed strong interest for the M-FUND solution. We will now be working to prepare launch of the M-FUND in one or both provinces, early next year!
