Describes the successes and challenges of the fight against hiv/aids in the Phayao district of northern Thailand. While existing measures have succeeded in reducing seroprevalence among vulnerable groups (pregnant women, military conscripts), progress has levelled off. To enable further progress, the authors have identified profound health care reforms, at the level of 'purpose and roles': the sector is charged not only with providing services, but with couselling and enabling individuals and communities to assess how hiv/aids affects them, to change their behaviour as needed, and to learn from their actions
