With the high costs of healthcare and lack of access to healthcare providers in Poipet, many villagers are not able to obtain treatment for even the most basic ailments such as coughs and the common cold. Project Battambang seeks to bring healthcare to people through mass village screenings and door-to-door screenings. We conduct health screenings in 4 different villages: Oresai Ler, Prey Kup, Tom Nub Kor Pram and Prey Prek. .
For patients who require specialised tests or more in-depth medical procedures, such as thyroid hormone tests and cataract surgery, we have a referral programme where they are referred them to local hospitals with the necessary services. We accompany these patients to the respective hospitals to ensure that they receive appropriate treatment and arrange for their lodging, transport and follow up. .
2014 also marked the introduction of dental services for children conducted during the health screenings. We aim to constantly improve the breadth of services and the quality of service that we provide to the people of Poipet.
In the coming future, we are looking into expanding our mobile screening services even further so that we can continue to help elderly or im- mobile patients, and ensure that no one is left without necessary healthcare.
