70% of our patients at MMC are women. We have seen too many young women die (many of them mothers) due to lack of prevention measures. So our new Mercy Women’s Health Care Program will address this need is three ways: Cancer Screening, Training healthcare workers, and community education.
TRAINING: We are developing a one year women’s health fellowship. Each year we have 2-3 family practice physicians graduate from the current residency program at MMC. Interested graduates will be invited to stay an extra year for focused teaching on women’s health issues prevalent in Cambodia, including cervical cancer prevention and treatment, before they are sent out to practice as compassionate Christian physicians around the country.
