The Nokor Tep Foundation has at its central core the Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital. Nokor Tep Foundation is an NGO registered with the Ministry Of Interior and the Ministry of Health. The hospital is being built with donations received from thousands of people from around the world, including Cambodians.
The Nokor Tep Women’s Hospital has a clear and comprehensive vision. Currently, less than 10% of the rural population has access to medical care. It is also very clear that 90% of the women in Cambodia suffer from long term gynecological infections of various kinds.
Our vision is to have a women’s hospital that is focused on gynecological issues and women’s cancers thereby alleviating the silent suffering of the vast majority of women in Cambodia.
The hospital will be a Teaching hospital in all aspects of medical care. Medical volunteers from all over the world will come and enhance the skills of Cambodian medical professionals.
An Education and Preventive Unit will be an integral part of the hospital. In this unit – materials will be developed to educate women about their various issues, what they can do for prevention and when to seek medical intervention.
Public Health Care: Our outreach to all parts of Cambodia will be through mobile clinics. Nokor Tep staff will be trained to be able to screen women in their communities; provide education and provide treatments for minor ailments.
The hospital will have a Research Unit where research will be carried out in the various illnesses affecting women in Cambodia, the causes, effects and treatments.
Current Status of the hospital:
Construction of the physical structure of the hospital will be completed by end of 2017
