Work in schools across rural Cambodia to encourage health education by teaching about hygiene, sexually transmitted diseases and more!

This program is aimed at those with a background in medicine and looking to gain work experience abroad. Your role will be based on your level of experience. The program is set in rural Cambodia, where access to good health centers is limited.

Overview

We work with several local schools to encourage the development of health education in cooperation with the provincial health department. In a country such as Cambodia, especially in rural areas, this is of extreme importance.

Our program is designed for those with a medical background, your role will be based on your level of experience and the judgment of local doctors.

We encourage participants to prepare work and lessons before their arrival. Topics like the following should be your main concern:

  • Sanitation/hygiene
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections
  • Body Health

Keep in mind that you will be teaching in rural schools and working with basic resources, you will need to get creative!
