KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) was founded in 1858, and is now a regional leader in Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Neonatology. Today, the 830-bed hospital is a referral centre providing tertiary services to handle high-risk conditions in women and children.

As part of KKH’s mission to lead in excellent, holistic and compassionate care for Women and Children, they have also worked in developing countries in the region, to help raise the medical training standards, and bring comfort to women and children who would otherwise suffer from lack of adequate medical support.

KKH and SCVD have been in discussions over a collaboration in Cambodia to provide low cost medical solutions , and bring training to staff at health centres and hospitals, mainly in the field of obstetrics and paediatrics.  The collaboration joins SCVD’s on the ground experience, network and knowledge of rural communities, with KKH’s medical expertise and experience in working in developing countries.  The collaboration will start in 2013, following ongoing research and preparation to provide tailored training and low cost medical solutions.
