Moms can register to receive new-born subsidy from Sep


ANGKOK, 25 July 2015  The government is set to provide pre-registration for mothers to access the new-born subsidy on 1 September 2015, while the subsidy program will begin in October. 

The Prime Minister’s Office Deputy Spokesman Maj Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd has revealed the Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered officials in all related agencies to publicize the new-born children subsidy campaign among pregnant mothers in poor families, so that they are aware of their rights to claim the government’s 400 baht monthly subsidy.

Eligible mothers, including women with pregnancy, can register by 1 September 2015 to claim their benefits in October. This subsidy aims to provide mothers valuable time with their new-born infants.

The Prime Minister also reportedly thanked operational officials, and the Family Doctor teams from the Ministry of Public Health, who were the first unit that was responsible in taking care of the mothers and children in this campaign.

He has also asked officials in all units to review their operational procedures for maximum efficiency, and to give their best effort towards this program, as the policy is considered an important part in the creation of the nation’s human resources.

The PMO’s Deputy Spokesman has further said that the new-born children subsidy campaign will provide 400 baht monthly subsidy for children being born from 1 October 2015 to 30 September 2016 to poor families, to encourage better healthcare access for new-born children.

The cabinet has approved an initial budget of 600 million baht for this subsidy program
