Also success stories in the history: Christian missionary hospitals in Asia Aug 15, 2010

It is known that missionary and Christian churches played leading role in modernization of Non-western countries. In this regard, the missionary initiated the medical treatment and medical education in Thailand. They concentrated on localization of medical knowledge and communication with local people. I remember I was much impressed when I went to a neighboring mission hospital to get a medical certificate to study abroad. The US native resident doctor sat with a translator (a local Chinese who was fluent in English) to inquire about my sickness while they knew I could communicate in English etc. Many patients could not speak English for sure and the interpretators worked hard to assist them. In addition, most medical terms in English have been localized to Thai and I am proud to say that medicine is the most advanced localization of the technology in Thailand if compare with engineering, military, aviation etc.

Best regards,
Soonthon Lupkitaro
