GlaxoSmithKline (Thailand) Limited presents:
The GSK Medicine Bank for Relief and Community Health Program
GSK recognizes the need to address health concerns, increase people’s healthcare knowledge, and broaden access to quality medicines. As part of our Corporate Access to Medicine initiative, in 2011, GSK Thailand began collaborating with the Thai Red Cross Society on the GSK Medicine Bank for Relief and Community Health program, aiming to promote healthcare literacy.
Under this program, GSK donates a variety of medicines and vaccines through the Thai Red Cross Society, which oversees the distribution of products given to provide relief services and public health support for people in need nationwide. In addition, GSK works closely with the Relief and Community Health Bureau of the Thai Red Cross Society, and government agencies to deliver healthcare services during times of need via its Mobile Medical Consulting Unit.
A team of GSK doctors, pharmacists and volunteers provide health checks and consultations to the underprivileged and victims of floods, and hand out much-needed necessities such as personal care items and basic medications across the country. The GSK team also reaches out to the public in many ways, including through the use of Vejjapha, a Royal Medical Barge that cruises along the length of the Chaopraya River to provide essential health services every year.
