This report is based primarily on the findings of a review of the current status of the implementation of the ICPD PoA vis-à-vis the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through desk reviews of national statistics and reports, including other reliable data sources as well as the proceedings of consultative meetings with key stakeholders and experts. This report draws on Thailand’s experience in implementing the ICPD PoA and highlights the good practices, lessons learned, emerging challenges and obstacles faced by the country, and recommends priority actions to be taken to move the ICPD agenda forward. 

Despite the considerable success that Thailand has achieved for most of the ICPD targets and the MDGs, there are some areas that require further attention and concerted action to ensure that Thailand will fully achieve these goals and targets by 2015 and beyond. These challenges include working toward universal access to social services and social protection and reducing inequality, gaps and disparities, particularly among vulnerable populations.
