Amid STD explosion, Pattayarak health clinic expands

PATTAYA:--With steadily increasing reports of sexually transmitted disease infections, Naklua’s Pattayarak Center has upgraded its operation to accommodate the rush of new patients.

 

Dr. Suwanachai Wattana­yingcharoen, director-general of Thailand’s Department of Disease Control, joined Pattaya Deputy Mayor Banlue Kullavanijaya at the Valentine’s Day opening of the expanded center behind Lan Po Market.

 

Suwanachai said the center’s patient load has increased from 5,500 in 2015 to 12,134 in 2017. Meanwhile, though, Thailand has added only 60 new public health clinics during the same time.

 

Pattayarak Center previously won an award of excellence from the Public Health Ministry, servicing both sex workers and the public.

Wondering why that may be.. 
Maybe because "there is no prostitution" in Pattaya/Thailand,so lots feel safe not to use a condom ? + AIDS has become a "manageable" condition + you only live once so make the most of it ,although Thais may believe in re-incarnation so they get another go.

With a headline like that, I'd imagine Pattaya expats would be scared stiff....in a manner of speaking.

Just a little clarification. AIDS is a condition that results from untreated HIV. They are not quite the same thing. Being HIV+ is a completely manageable health condition. With proper daily medication that is widely available you will lead a normal and healthy life. Also with routine medication, HIV+ people will be able to very quickly reduce the level of the virus to a point where they are incapable of transmitting it to others.

#U=U

If however HIV is untreated and if your level of CD4 cells drops to below 200 that would be considered an AIDS diagnosis. Which means that your body's immune system would no longer be able to fight off opportunistic infections that a healthy immune system would have no problem dealing with. HIV does not cause death but rather it is from other infections and complications resulting from an improperly functioning immune system. Now you can also recover from an AIDS diagnosis with the proper treatment. So yes actually, now HIV is a completely manageable health condition. If anyone needs more information or links to local resources please contact me directly. Thanks.

Lots of staff there. Looks like one of the better buildings in the area also.

 

Says something though, that it is the local clap clinic.

....or perhaps "scared limp" would be more likely.

That building right at the seafood market. What a strange place to put a health clinic.

I would say it is the ideal location. When some young lady turns up with problems in her nether regions, they can blame the smell on the fish market.
