“It’s an honor to facilitate such a high level visit and to have our members of the Chinese delegation to Phnom Penh. We do this as we also mark the 60th anniversary of Cambodia and China diplomatic relations next year,”explains Prof. Manson Fok, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at MUST and Chairman of the Regional Healthcare Outreach (One Belt, One Road).

Prof. Fok said, “His Excellency Prime Minister Hun Sen’s official visit to Beijing during the Belt and Road forum last month reflects on how much we have achieved and taken steps to ensure our comprehensive strategic partnership continues to strengthen in the future. Our upcoming Regional Health Outreach (One Belt One Road) visit underscores China’s shared commitments to promoting greater prosperity and healthcare collaborations in our region.”

“This will bridge better medical understanding and training regionally between members of the One Belt, One Road Initiative,” explains Prof. Jiang Boaguo.

They told me about their Doctor Alliance of Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (DA-UYFC)and Prof. Fok and I came down from Macau to see their work.”

Dr. Chan explains, “When we saw the shape of rural healthcare, we acted to help by donating two sonograms for women’s care.”

Dr. Chan adds, “Working closely with Professor Jiang Baoguo, President of Peking University Peoples Hospital, we established a channel to bridge his revolutionary trauma care system in China to Cambodia. This is what we are doing now for our first project in the Regional Healthcare Outreach (One Belt, One Road) platform.”
