Our launch in Cambodia
Continuing with our mission to ‘Deliver Healthcare, Everywhere’, Allied World Healthcare (AWH) has successfully launched our first project in Siem Reap province, Cambodia.
Working alongside Temple Garden Foundation (TGF, a well-established local charity), AWH held launch events in Oklong and Tapo Muoy villages on September 25 and October 2 2018 respectively. Each community health services event was attended by more than one hundred villagers with their children for health lectures on nutrition, blood pressure screening, height and weight checks and an orientation to the Allied World model and future benefits.
These village launches will be followed by three other villages in rural Siem Reap in the coming weeks.
Local Village Health Support Group (VHSG) workers were also trained to support and strengthen the grassroots implementation of the project, using Allied World’s Curis application to collecting information and insight on local community needs. At least two VHSG workers per village were trained, equipped, and continuously supported by AWH and TGF for the project. The event was delivered in partnership with the local Commune Health Centre.
For over 200 residents profiled, it was found out that only 40% has their own personal toothbrush, 39% having clean water source in their houses.
These launch events are just the start of many AWH projects that will be held in the villages. Future projects will be driven by the aggregated- data and insights, allowing AWH and TGHF to tailor-fit outreach campaigns and events with actual community needs.
AWH will continue to provide access family healthcare to everyone, visit our website for updates.
Access to health services remains a key problem in rural areas and lower and middle-income countries (LMICs), where skilled health workers and digital health options are often in short supply. Focusing on the “three Cs” of health delivery — community-led, connectivity and collaborations — can help to build more flexible health systems for hard-to-reach populations.
reach52 started offering affordable insurance through our reach52 marketplace service last year. We’re now expanding our insurance range through an exciting new partnership with ProSur Insurance PLC in uninsured markets in Cambodia.
We’re delighted to announce that reach52 was selected as one of the two winners of the challenge for a novel solution leveraging our existing ‘offline-first’ health tech platform to enable tracking of COVID-19 vaccinations in low-resource settings.
