Volunteer Human Resources
Angkor Hospital for Children Angkor (AHC) is a non-profit paediatric teaching hospital providing high-quality compassionate health care to Cambodian children. Working in cooperation with the Cambodian Ministry of Health, AHC’s mission is to improve the healthcare system on a national level so that every child in Cambodia, no matter where they live or ability to pay, has access to the quality health care they deserve. AHC has treated over 1.5 million children since our establishment in 1999. In 2005, Angkor Hospital for Children established an on-site microbiology laboratory in collaboration with the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit which was officially established as the Cambodia Oxford Medical Research Unit (COMRU) in 2013. COMRU’s mission is to lead and collaborate on research aimed at identifying, improving diagnostics and treatment for, and preventing the major causes of childhood morbidity and mortality in Cambodia and similar low and middle income countries.
