Abstract

After endorsement of the Sustainable Development Goals in September, 2015, by world leaders for which “leaving no one behind” is top of the agenda, many countries are gearing towards universal health coverage (UHC). In view of the achievement in coverage of 98% of its population and expansion of benefits, Thailand's pioneering public health policies, implemented in 2002, have frequently been used as a showcase. This article highlights the challenges for the UHC from the new constitutional setting decided by the Thai military junta.
