Phnom Penh: Ministry of Health (MoH) in cooperation with Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) will hold the ground breaking ceremony for the Cambodia-Korea Friendship Eye Center on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at Preah Angduong Hospital. This ceremony will be presided over by H.E Kim Young-Mok, KOICA President, H.E Kim Han Soo, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, and H.E Dr. Mam Bunheng, Minister of Ministry of Health. 

This Eye Center is constructed under the Project for the Establishment of Preah Angduong Eye Hospital in Phnom Penh which is the 3-year grant aid project of the Republic of Korea to Cambodia through KOICA with the total budget of 5.5 million USD. KOICA in cooperation with Kim Eye Hospital will implement this project together with MoH. KOICA will provide the construction and the medical equipments, and Kim Eye Hospital will offer the technical support and capacity building for the medical staffs of Preah Angduong Hospital. This collaboration as the Public-Private Partnership will promote the effectiveness and sustainability of the project.    

The Cambodia-Korea Friendship Eye Center will be built with four stories in total. All the rooms of each floor will be designed with specific functions and provided with modern medical equipments and facilities to serve the eye patients with quality and efficiency. This Eye Center is expected to contribute to the blind prevention rate, improve eye care services and capacity of the ophthalmic research. Therefore, people who live in Phnom Penh and nearby regions will directly benefit from the improved eye care and facilities. 

In addition to this construction, KOICA has been providing grant aid for other hospital construction projects to Ministry of Health, including the constructions of Batheay Referral Hospital at Kampong Cham Province, Maternal Child Medical Center at Siem Reap Provincial Hospital, Kampong Chhnang Referral Hospital, and Cambodia-Korea Friendship Building at National Pediatric Hospital. This kind of development cooperation in health sector will further improve and strengthen the close relationship between the two countries.
