Of the many challenges we face as a global community – and there are many – health crises constitute among the most serious.  Today, the headlines tell us of the toll that Ebola has taken in West Africa.  Not long ago the world faced repeated outbreaks of SARS, multiple influenzas, not to mention the continued threat posed by HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, measles – I could go on. But I won’t.  What I do want to point out is that our single greatest defense against these threats is our health workers.  These men and women fight on the front lines every day at great risk to themselves to protect us.  Helping them to become a coordinated, disciplined, qualified, and effective fighting force is what this gathering is all about.

USAID Cambodia is implementing one of President Obama’s key initiatives, Feed the Future to fight global hunger and malnutrition and help communities pull themselves out of poverty.  Nowhere is this more important than here in Cambodia.  We know that malnutrition and lack of early child development continues to hold back the country’s children.  We also know that one out of four Cambodians lives below the poverty line and many more very close to the line.  Think about what kind of opportunities await once we eliminate these challenges.

Official presentation of USAID-funded Medical Equipment to Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope
June 12, 2013

On behalf of USAID, it is my great pleasure to join you today for this special event, as we complete the handover of critical medical equipment to the Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope.  I would like to thank our colleagues at the Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope for organizing today’s event.  I would also like to thank our colleagues from the Ministry of Health and the Australian Embassy for joining us as well as commend their combined efforts to improve women’s health in Cambodia.

When the Sihanouk Hospital requested USAID assistance to procure equipment to open a Women’s Health Clinic, we recognized the opportunity to contribute toward improving women’s health in Cambodia.  The Sihanouk Hospital provides free medical care to Cambodians who have no other options for care.  It is a critical and exemplary mission.  To date, the hospital has provided more than one million free patient consultations.
