Cambodia, like many other countries around the world, has made massive strides in minimising the incidence of many transferable diseases. This is mostly due to efforts by organisations like those we partner with, that bring private international funding to outreach projects in Cambodia. While public healthcare has improved, supplementing these efforts with those from private organisations is essential in providing the Cambodian people with the support they require.
However, despite these efforts, easily avoidable communicable diseases are still prevalent, and life-style related non-communicable diseases, like diabetes, are on the rise. Join us in Kampong Cham to provide the manpower needed to expand awareness around preventing both communicable and non-communicable diseases.
You will be trained by our staff stationed in Cambodia and then go out to conduct workshops in the local community. Depending on the needs of the community at the time, you might be teaching anyone, from children and teens to older adults about the importance of proper hygiene and sanitation practices or how to deliver emergency aid. This is an excellent program for students considering a career in public health, nursing or counselling.
