Cover reads: Screaming whistle, 30 baht cannot cure all
Cartoon: The “golden whistle” disease. [The golden whistle was used by the People’s Democratic Reform Committee during its demonstration as an honor given to important supporters of the group. Dr. Narong Sahametapat (on the cover), permanent secretary of the public health ministry, was awarded with one.
The cover refers to an anonymous report that Dr. Narong proposed to the National Council for Peace and Order that patients under the 30 baht for any medical procedure project should pay for 30-50% of the total cost of their hospital bills instead. This would be a big change from the present Thaksin-initiated 30 baht plan.]
