Project: Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC)
Mission: For over 20 years, AHC has been unwavering in its mission to deliver healthcare that is of high quality in a compassionate and holistic manner to Cambodia’s children. But it is only with appropriately trained doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, can child health outcomes improve across Cambodia. At this critical time in development of Cambodia’s healthcare system, AHC is uniquely positioned to transform pediatric healthcare not only within our own walls, but also within the healthcare system itself through teaching of pediatric health knowledge, sharing of best practices in pediatric medical care, and contributing to nationwide child health decision making and dialogue as the leading pediatric healthcare organization.
Under the umbrella of AHC’s Pediatric Healthcare Training Academy, AHC aims to formalize and expand access to clinical training and specialized medical training, while also improving access to high quality pediatric care across Cambodia.
Description: Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) is a non-profit paediatric healthcare organisation with a mission of improving healthcare for all Cambodian children. AHC has grown from a small hospital with just two beds in 1999 to a leading, well-established, paediatric healthcare organisation today, having provided over 2 million treatments to children from every one of Cambodia’s 25 provinces.
AHC combines twenty years of providing compassionate healthcare and purposeful innovation to improve paediatric healthcare across Cambodia. We use what we learn and do to influence child health far beyond our walls: informing national policy, creating replicable models for other low-resource settings and contributing to the global child health dialogue.
