I do agree with W.Thanachol that the biggest step of health system improvement in Thailand is the implementation of a universal coverage system. This project based on the idea of equity of health care access and financial support for health care service to all people in Thailand. Furthermore, this system also has a service provision to deliver personal and non-personal health services (such as a preventive measure). The universal coverage project brings the good health, fair beneficial contribution, and responsiveness to Thai people.
The possible barriers in the implementation of universal coverage are consists of good governance and financing. This system is covered health of more than 70% of a Thai citizen, good governance is essentially required for a good strategic policy framework, good system design, effective oversight and, appropriate regulations and incentive. Financing is also another important barrier, due to it is a huge system for most of the people in Thailand, the budget allocation to the hospitals and other organizations involved in the universal coverage system should be reasonable, equitable and transparent.
