Self-help groups are common in Thailand, a tradition perhaps strongest in the Upper North. Long before HIV/AIDS, villagers with similar interests, such as housewives, disabled people or young people, formed associations that support their members. These groups are recognised components of community life. Their office-holders are part of decision-making processes intended to ensure that the community as a whole benefits from proposed changes. Positive People’s groups are a more recent development in a tradition that has long helped members play a full and active role in their communities. 2006
