Situation of the Thai Elderly 2007

The Foundation of Thai Gerontology Research and Development Institute (TGRI) has pleasure in its designation by the National Commission on the Elderly to act as liaison party in compilation of the annual report of the Situation of the Thai Elderly for consecutive two years since TGRI was founded in 2007 and commenced to take charge of compilation of the Report in 2006 as the first year. For the present Report of 2007, TGRI does its best to have the Report Books printed and disseminated not exceeding 1 year from the time when the previous annual report books were printed and disseminated which TGRI usually successfully achieve such timeframe. Such success arises from contribution of many public agencies that recognize significance of the future orientation by a means of preparing readiness of the Thai society to cope with the aging society.
