This policy report examines the making of Thailand’s medical hub policy using a negotiation analysis approach, with a focus on the interplay among public officials, the private sector and civil society players in the development of the Second Strategic Plan (2014–2018). The analysis showcases how the Thai government aligned the diverging stances and preferences of various government agencies, reconciled the different interests of the private and civil society sectors, as well as addressed the concerns of civil society stakeholders through the use of participatory policymaking. Although the report focuses on this specific case, it offers recommendations on how governments could engage the public in policymaking on other issue areas.
