A Networked Government: Learning from Thai Health Promotion Foundation on Accident Prevention
The paper is based on the study sponsored by the Office of the Public Sector Development Commission (OPDC). The study aims to describe how to bring about public participation within the context of a networked government- working together with individuals, local communities, civic groups and association, private firms, and public agencies at all levels. The governing by networks concept points to the need to work together with its key stakeholders when responding to citizens’ needs and demands especially social and complex problems such as drugs, accidents, and education as well as emergency responses to natural and industrial disasters. The OPDC, in cooperation of the Thai Health Promotion Foundation (THPF), focuses on the road accident which is one of the top three leading causes of death in Thailand. There are two illustrations; i.e., road accident campaign and public awareness on the intersections between railway and roads. Information and knowledge play a key role in sustaining a networked government. The benefits from public participation are summarized with the discussion on the future steps.
