Chuthaporn Suntayakorn (Jeab), PhD Social Policy


Prior to starting my PhD, I completed a BA in Government from the Political Science faculty at Chulalongkorn University (Thailand) and then went on to study for an MSc in Public Policy from the University of Bristol.

I previously worked as a Policy Analysis Officer for the Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health Thailand.  Today I serve as a lecturer in health and social care policy at the College of ASEAN Community Studies, Naresuan University, Thailand. I am also part of CACS research team investigating the impact of Thai health policy on migrant rights and social exclusion in Thailand.

Research topic

My main research interest is in the area of policy relating to border health security, health equity and migrant health within ASEAN context. I am exploring the impact of migrant health insurance or migrant health coverage policy on healthcare services for migrants at Thai-Myanmar border hospitals in Thailand. The study investigates Thai health care service providers’ experience of providing health service for migrants following the implementation of migrant health coverage policy.
