Home / ThaiBev's Sustainability
Recognizing the importance of public health to national development, ThaiBev continues to promote health in the community by supporting the activities of a wide range of medical organizations, foundations, and agencies. Our aim is for the public to know more about disease prevention and how to take care of their own well-being, in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 on Good Health and Well-being.
Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital

It provides medical services, research, and academic training concerning kidney disease and cooperates with other charitable organizations in order to create the greatest benefit to society and the country. The hospital currently serves both kidney patients and general internal medicine patients. It also researches and develops methods to prevent chronic kidney failure, including helping kidney patients to have a better understanding of their disease and achieve a better quality of life.

Since 2012, the hospital has performed a total of 129 kidney transplants. After surgery, the recipients’ kidneys are able to function normally and they have a better quality of life. Since 2019, 53,908 patients have undergone hemodialysis.
Key Projects
Chang Medical Clinics
Since 2006, 17 Chang Medical Clinics have served communities around the factory in Kamphaeng Phet Province and in nearby provinces. This gives local people the opportunity to access treatment and care at efficient medical facilities. There is no charge for examinations and other procedures; patients pay only for medicines, at cost price.

In addition, the project cooperates with hospitals in Kamphaeng Phet Province and elsewhere to organize a mobile medical unit to take care of people in the vicinity.
