Volunteering in Cambodia on the Public Health programme with Projects Abroad will provide you with valuable work experience whilst contributing to improving the health and quality of lives of local people.

Volunteering on the Public Health project in Cambodia is a fantastic and rewarding experience and is also a great addition to your CV or university application. Whether you're a university hopeful, studying for a degree in medicine or healthcare, or a qualified medical practitioner you will have an important role to play,

As a volunteer, you will work alongside a qualified nurse and project coordinator, conducting home visits and providing basic health services to children at local care facilities. This may include basic health checks, such as blood pressure and BMI checks, disease screenings and referrals, and providing education about general health issues.

Volunteers also carry out work in the office, reporting on findings during outreach work and completing basic care plans. This work is done in order to track and monitor long-term outcomes.

Projects Abroad Public Health Volunteering in Cambodia Reviews

Wonderful experience

I found the Cambodian health project a wonderful experience and it really allowed me to immerse into the Cambodian culture. We ventured out into the communities and also travelled to places outside of Phnom Penh to provide healthcare and health education.

I would recommend this program to anyone

My experience with Projects Abroad was sensational. I completed the public health program in Cambodia which was fantastically organised. Every single day I felt as though we were achieving incredible things. Would recommend this program to anyone. I am also looking to go on another program with Projects Abroad in the future.

Cambodia Public Health Volunteer Experience

I really liked the healthcare volunteer project in Cambodia I was participating on. Travelling in Phnom Penh during the work days was well organized and we always had a coordinator with us. Rehabilitation with two of our patients went really well and all of our patients were very pleased of our help. It was so nice to see how grateful people were for our help. The apartment I stayed was nice and clean. The food was amazing and all the staff was very friendly and helpful.
