Kudos to the Banphaeo General Hospital for their work in this initiative; it is a good thing, period.

And, may I add a 'Kudos' for the people who came up with the slogan "Don't Wait, Get Checked"; there is a weapons-grade ambiguity and subtleness to it.

"Don't Wait, Get Checked" can easily be seen as a 'pro-active public health initiative to assist the general populace attain better health outcomes through preventative screenings', OR it could be seen as a 'pro-active public health initiative to assist the general populace in warning about and dealing with lung-cancer causing air pollution in the city' OR it could be seen as a 'pro-active public health initiative to assist the general populace in dealing with something on the par with the clap; that "Weed" you smoked last night was... er... ahem... go to the hospital.'

Either way, it is a good idea to "Don't Wait, Get Checked".
