XIENG KHOUANG PROVINCE, LAO PDR — On July 25, USAID Country Representative to Lao PDR Mr. Michael Ronning and Director General Department Healthcare and Rehabilitation, Ministry of Health Dr. Khamsay Detleuxay, to officially handover equipment for rehabilitation and functional exercise for the Rehabilitation Unit, in Kham District Hospital, Xieng Khouang Province, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

“We are proud to provide equipment for rehabilitation and functional exercise for the Rehabilitation Unit to assist the Kham District Hospital. Through this support, more people with mobility difficulties will receive quality rehabilitation services,” said Mr. Ronning. “U.S. Government health and disability assistance is a central part of the U.S. - Lao Comprehensive Partnership. The United States looks forward to continuing our collaboration and support in the health and disability sector in Lao PDR.”

Rehabilitation is key to strengthening the health system.  When quality rehabilitation is available at all levels of the health system, particularly at the primary health care level, it supports the Lao population as a whole and enables all to participate in, and contribute to, the economic development of the country.

People in the community can now access rehabilitation services and receive healthcare from qualified doctors, nurses, and physiotherapists.

USAID, through USAID Okard, has contributed 326,642,810 LAK to support the equipment for rehabilitation and functional exercise for the Rehabilitation Unit in the Kham District Hospital, Xieng Khouang Province.

USAID Okard, funded by USAID and implemented by World Education, Inc., in partnership with Humanity and Inclusion, improves access to quality rehabilitation and economic opportunities for persons with disabilities and supports design and implementation of disabilities inclusive policies.
