Thailand proposes free health care for kids

Thai government is planning to offer free health care for children under six.

    The Thai government says it plans to offer free health care for children under six, including vaccinations that can cost more than $30.

    The proposal applies to children of migrant workers, many of whom struggle to pay for doctors visits. But judging by similar policies in the past, the new health care law may take a long time to come into effect.
