A child born in Cambodia is five times more likely to die before their fifth birthday than a child born in a wealthy country.

Hospital for Children (AHC) is a leading children’s healthcare organisation based in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Since 1999, they’ve helped millions of children get the healthcare they need.
AHC is a flagship hospital pioneering specialty treatments and care rarely available elsewhere in Cambodia, with some of the most sophisticated facilities and clinicians in the country. Specialty care offered at AHC includes long-term conditions like asthma, diabetes and epilepsy, neonatal and paediatric intensive care and over 30 types of cancer treatments, especially eye and blood cancers.
AHC is also a teaching centre of excellence inspiring new generations of health workers and works in some of Cambodia’s poorest communities to empower caregivers with vital health information.
AHC provides quality care to children from poor families for free, with families that can afford it making a small contribution. It costs AHC $5.5m each year to provide life-saving care and education projects.
