Situation Analysis of Substance Use among LGBT Communities in Thailand

Aug 9, 2021

The report makes available Thailand-specific data on the substance use–related behaviours of the LGBT community that can potentially put them at risk. The report summarizes information found in academic peer-reviewed studies, in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems managed by civil society organizations (CSOs), and the 1,179 responses from individuals who self-identified as LGBT in a nationwide survey conducted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Thailand.

The report intends to contribute to the sensitization of key stakeholders involved in responding to the needs of LGBT people who use substances in Thailand, to provide a solid basis for developing evidence-based public health interventions grounded on harm reduction principles, to stimulate cooperation between stakeholders working with LGBT people and people who use substances, and to support strategic advocacy towards a more enabling legal and policy environment and more targeted resource mobilization efforts.
