Cambodia

The Eye Care Foundation has been working in partnership with the National Program for Eye Health (Ministry of Health) in Cambodia since 1994 to decrease cases of avoidable blindness and vision impairment. Over the past 27 years, ECF has expanded its projects to work with Provincial Health Departments in nine provinces especially in remote communities to reach the most marginalized and isolated populations as well as to support projects in the capital, Phnom Penh.

In collaboration with the NPEH, ECF delivers mobile eye camps to the isolated provinces of Pailin, Oddar Meanchey, and Preah Vihear where the communities are still recovering from the impact of the Khmer Rouge regime (1975 to 1979) as well as the Mondulkiri province.  In Stung Treng, Tbong Khmum, Ratanakiri, Kratie, and Svay Rieng, ECF supports the provision of eye care services including community and school eye screenings, cataract, and other surgeries, and continuous professional development for eye health professionals.
