Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) Where: Siem Reap, Cambodia Partner since: 2012 (current agreement runs until 2018) Current level of engagement (April 2016): low www.angkorhospital.org
ABOUT: AHC delivers high-quality paediatric healthcare to children in Northern Cambodia in partnership with the Cambodian government and is a major center for health education and research within Cambodia. AHC’s 5-year goal is to increase access to and quality of care for Cambodian children by sharing and broadly disseminating AHC procedures, practices and policies for utilisation and adoption by an increased number of health care organisations, both governmental and non-governmental.
NEED: Lack of clean drinking water, malnutrition and the low prevalence of good sanitation and hygiene practices together with extremely poor quality of healthcare –particularly in rural provinces contribute to preventable child illness and death in Cambodia.
WHAT WE DO: Firetree played a crucial role in AHC’ transition toward successfully becoming an independent organization with strong governance and management. We currently support AHC to create a “best practice” community healthcare program as well as to strengthen Cambodia’s healthcare system through increased cooperation with the Government and other Healthcare facilities, as well as through the continued improvement of the quality of care provided at AHC.
