Since 27 January 2020 when Cambodia confirmed the first case of COVID-19, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has implemented numerous measures to prevent its possible spread with technical support from the World Health Organization (WHO). As of 5th July 2021, Cambodia has a total of 56,112 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 779 death.
The Cambodian Ministry of Health (MoH) has played a central role in overseeing and containing the response to COVID-19 and providing medical advice and training to hospitals and health workers. The MoH has authorized three hospitals in Phnom Penh and 25 Provincial Referral Hospitals to order tests for and treat cases of COVID-19.
Governmental efforts with extensive aid support from China and other countries have significantly improved the country’s overall capacity to handle the COVID 19 pandemic. However, proper and safe treatment of medical waste infected by COVID-19, areas in which Cambodia has limited resources, expertise, and experience are one of the remaining, critical challenges. Particular challenges which the COVID response designated hospitals experience include:
This project aims to overcome these challenges and to support the RGC to strengthen its ongoing efforts to manage infectious medical waste and protect Phnom Penh’s population and the urban environment against the threat of COVID-19. Within the 12 month timeline, the project aims to achieve the following three outputs.
UNDP will work closely with the WHO and MoH as well as the target three hospitals namely National Pediatric Hospital (NPH), Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital (KSFH) and Chak Angrer Health Center for the successful implementation of the project.
