ABOUT US

SBCHealthNet is for people who live with chronic and life threatening illness and the health professionals who help them.

Here you'll find health news, free downloads, podcasts, books and videos, all designed to keep you happier and healthier and to connect you with others like you.

SBC Group is a health development agency based in Bangkok and contributing to the global movement for better health.

As we’ve travelled the globe designing and influencing community health systems, we’ve wanted to talk directly to individuals living with illnesses.

In 2016 we started to transform this website in to a health-news magazine for health professionals and a multimedia health education site that aims to put people living with illnesses in control of their health.
