About the Program

Community Public Health in Khon Kaen is based at Khon Kaen University in northeastern Thailand. The program approaches the study of public health from both an academic and practical perspective, allowing students to actively engage with the local community while exploring public health issues in Thailand and the surrounding region. Visits to health care facilities, rural communities, and a neighboring country for comparative context, round out this unique experience.


Community Public Health is located in Khon Kaen, Thailand’s fourth largest city. The northeast region is known for its beautiful temples and recreation areas, and Khon Kaen serves as a regional hub for NGOs, government, education, and many developing industries.
