As the Network Institute of Public Health and Medical Technology College is going to take part in ASEAN community, it is important for the public health personnel to improve their potential so that they can fit into life within ASEAN. The research was aimed at studying the factors that affect the work performance of public health personnel toward ASEAN communities. Means of simple random sampling technique was used to collect 272 samples from public health personnel. The reliability of the overall questionnaire was 0.77. Data analysis was carried out in term of percentage, mean and multiple regression analysis.The results were found as follows: self efficacy and working expectancy were identified as the factors that influenced the work performance of public health personnel significantly (p <.01) by 46.60 percent of accuracy. Thus, it is necessary to encourage public health personnel to increase self efficacy in management skill and public health networking. Furthermore, the working expectancy of knowledge and essential skills are also required in order to have higher work performance. Therefore, creating a role model for public health personnel by visiting leading organizations in country or ASEAN might be an effective way to improve work efficiency.
