Impact on the Thai population

Impact on the Thai population

Medical research also significantly improves the morbidity and mortality of a country, accounting for roughly half of the annual reduction in the burden of disease and injury. Using World Health Organization data, it is estimated that 3.01 million disability adjusted life years (DALYs) averted in Thailand in 2015 can be attributed to worldwide medical research. Given clinical research accounts for 75% of all medical research, 2.26 million DALYs per year were saved due to worldwide clinical trials. The DALY reduction that arose from Thailand based research equated to 8,326 DALYs. The dollar value of wellbeing gains attributable to local clinical research can also be estimated using the market-based value of a year of healthy life for Thailand (฿1.8 million, USD 0.06 million)). The net present value of expected health benefits arising from clinical research conducted in Thailand in 2015 is ฿10.5 billion (USD 0.32 billion).
