On 17 March 2020 at 2 p.m. HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendiradebyavati Kromluangrajasarinisiribajra Mahavajrarajadhita went to grant medical equipment under the GOOD HEALTH GOOD HEART project to Samut Prakan Central Prison, Khlong Prem Prison, Bangkwang Central Prison and the Central Women Correctional Institution at the Samut Prakan Central Prison in the name of His Majesty the King. Furthermore, she bestowed a mobile x-ray machine to the Saraburi Hospital, donated books to put in the Corrections Health Corner PanSuk and a television device to the volunteers of the project, as well as bestowed royal gel from the royal project to the Samut Prakan Central Prison Hospital and gave souvenirs to the representatives and sponsors of the project. HRH also, opened a cover for the Health Corrections PanSuk corner in hospitals, and gave royal hospital bags to the sick, elderly and disabled inmates. Samut Prakan Central Prison holds a total of 7,857 inmates with 354 inmates suffering from chronic diseases. At Khlong Prem Prison there are a total of 7,354 inmates, 870 inmates with chronic diseases. The Bangkwang Central Prison holds a total of 5,816 inmates with 3433 inmates suffering from chronic diseases and the Central Women Correctional Institution at the Samut Prakan Central Prison there are a total of 5,500 people with 444 inmates being chronically ill. The Samut Prakan Central Prison is the nation's third most occupied prison with 7,857 inmates in one district, making the main problem healthcare as there are only 6 medical staff members in the prison, which means 1 person has to look after about 1,300 inmates. Nevertheless, due to the efforts of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen and their royal GOOD HEALTH GOOD HEART project, the National Health Security Office and the Ministry of Public Health came in to organize various systems, such as online registration of medical care for the inmates. Furthermore, Bang Bo Hospital came in to do health screening for inmates and looking after dental care every week. The mobile x-ray center has established itself in the prison as well as, the maternal and child health corner. Additionally, the HIV clinic promotes disease prevention which has led to an increase in inmates' access to medical care. Furthermore, the program provides vocational training for the inmates, which resulted to an increased income later and lead to mental stability and became a model for improving the quality of life of inmates with good health. This helped Samut Prakan Central Prison become selected as a study area to be observes by the International Conference of the Prince Mahidol Award under the Royal Patronage In collaboration with international associate organizations. This was visited by state visitors from 26 countries around the world on January 30, 2020. In addition, Bang Bo Hospital, the host hospital of Samut Prakan Central Prison, despite being a district hospital, drew a lot of attention with their aim and conviction by the management and staff to do proactive and preventive work resulting in handling the number of inmates very well. Furthermore, the Bang Bo Hospital provides divided areas in the hospital: An area for the care of inmates who have to be admitted to the hospital as well as a place for the Correction Officials who have to proctor and visit the inmates 24 hours a day. Therefore Bang Bo Hospital, was also chosen as a study area to be observed the International Conference of the Prince Mahidol Award under royal patronage. The project operations and the work from the very beginning until now has been evaluated by external evaluators, who initially found that prisons and hospitals have developed their own systems to greatly help prisoners, which includes innovation and creation of various activities where prisons and hospitals work together to look after inmates. Also, some prisons have shown more development than required in phase 1 of the initial plan of the project. For example, a development in the area of sanitary systems in prisons have been visible. Furthermore, work has been done in the various forms of disease prevention as well as a systematic change in the field of public health and the judicial process. Nevertheless, there are still some problems that occur with the prisoners, for example, the conditions in which the prisoners are coming down with non-chronic diseases being caused by eating too much sweet food or not exercising enough. The idea of the project is that ​​the health of the inmates must not depend solely on the responsibility of the nursing staff. However, the judges will use the said information to create guidelines for further solutions
