Share | print

Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) is a charity pediatric hospital in Siem Reap, Cambodia, founded in 1999. One out of every 15 Cambodian children dies before the age of five – often from treatable and preventable illness. AHC provides more than 120,000 Cambodian children with outpatient, inpatient and intensive care, as well as surgery, HIV care and other services, free of charge for those who cannot afford to pay. AHC has been officially recognized as a teaching hospital by the Cambodian government. Its Medical Education Center provides high-quality medical education to hundreds of Cambodian nurses and doctors annually.

The Abbott Fund provides support to Angkor Hospital for Children through its partner Direct Relief International (DRI).
