The Bangkok Small Community Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) seeks to generate statistically valid data on children in the most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities through a systematic and evidence-based approach. This survey provides a unique source of data and information, covering more than 80 indicators in the areas of nutrition, child health, water and sanitation, reproductive health, child development, literacy and education, child protection and HIV/AIDS. Data derived from the survey will help to clearly identify issues that adversely affect the well-being and development of children in Thailand. A more comprehensive understanding of the situation of children in small communities in the BMA will enable improved planning for equity-based policies and programme interventions. It will also respond to the national policy to leave no-one behind.
