Cambodia to have first women’s hospital soon

PHNOM PENH, March 13 (Xinhua) — The first women’s hospital will be opened soon in Cambodia in order to help mass women in this country who face serious problems accessing healthcare services.

In a statement released Tuesday, non-profit organization Nokor Tep Foundation said the 220-bed Nokor Tep hospital is the first health care facility of its kind in Cambodia that will provide services for women.

“We must stop the silent suffering of women in this country, where 85 percent of women face serious problems accessing healthcare services,” said Janne Ritskes, president of the Nokor Tep Foundation.

While the plan is in place, she said the funding of a new 11 million U.S. dollars hospital for poor women with cancer and other ailments is on track.

She said generous contribution from all sources is still welcome in order to make sure the hospital would operate well.

According to the statement, the first women’s hospital project with fund raising will begin later this month.

And once the hospital opens, it will provide 300 examinations per day by 20 Cambodian and 6 foreign specialists in gynecologists, oncologists, surgeons, anesthetists and radiotherapist.

Cambodia has established a religious-monk hospital which still exists today.
