Thailand demonstrated its commitment to preventing unintended pregnancy and halving adolescent childbearing by enacting the Prevention and Solution of the Adolescent Pregnancy Problem Act A.D. 2016 (in effect since July 2016). The Act guarantees five sexual and reproductive health rights for young people: the right to make a decision by oneself; the right to information and knowledge; the right to reproductive health service; the right to confidentiality and privacy; and the right to social welfare provision, that are equal and non-discriminative.

Over the years, Thailand has seen several shifts in its population policy that aimed at reducing fertility rates that were considered to be too high, to the current policy of maintaining fertility at replacement level as stated in the Ninth and Tenth National Plans, covering the periods 2002- 2006 and 2007-2011 respectively. But given the dramatic changes in the current context where fertility has dropped to startlingly low levels, with implications for population aging, decrease in the size of workforce and eventual population decline, there is a need to reconsider Thailand’s population policy and explore and deliberate upon different options and strategies.
