Is Public Health work in Cambodia for teenagers right for me?

Want to make the most of your summer holiday? Interested in adding practical healthcare experience to your CV? Do you want to support communities in need? If you answered yes to any of these questions, our Public Health High School Special in Cambodia is for you.


In Cambodia, you’ll travel around the capital city of Phnom Penh, and work at medical outreaches in disadvantaged communities. You don’t need previous experience to join, as we’ll teach you everything you need to know. All of your work is supervised, and our staff are there to support you constantly. 


You’ll learn how to measure blood pressure and temperatures. These skills will add a lot of value to your CV, and give you interesting points to talk about in applications and interviews. You’ll also be demonstrating your commitment to helping others.


When you aren’t working, our staff have organised plenty of activities and a weekend trip to keep you busy and entertained. 


This High School Special runs over fixed dates during the summer. You can join from anywhere between two to four weeks, depending on the time you have available.

What will I do on a Public Health placement in Cambodia for teenagers?

While learning more about Cambodian culture alongside other high school students, you’ll work under supervision at medical outreaches. Here are a few of the tasks you’ll be involved in:


  • Participate in community outreaches and assist medical staff with basic health checks
  • Conduct public health campaigns to educate schools and the local community
  • Learn about the healthcare system in Cambodia and traditional Khmer medicine
  • Learn more about Cambodian culture and the country’s history



Your work will focus on the following areas:


Participate in community outreaches and assist medical staff with basic healthcare


You’ll be taken to various kindergartens, primary schools, and care centres where you’ll assist medical staff with health checks for the children. You’ll also assist in improving the health standards of the children cared for at the schools and centres you visit.


Conduct public health campaigns to educate schools and the local community


You’ll visit communities where you’ll run awareness campaigns. You’ll present these campaigns to the public and share knowledge on various healthcare issues affecting the community. You can talk about the importance of good hygiene and how to prevent common diseases. You’ll also focus on the importance of seeking medical attention


Learn about the healthcare system in Cambodia


You’ll be taken on supervised visits to a local hospital. By doing so, you’ll get to learn more about the healthcare system in a developing country. Many countries still use traditional medicine and techniques to treat patients. By shadowing doctors in the hospital, you may also get to see traditional Khmer medicine being used.


Learn more about Cambodian culture and the country’s history


Your High School Special is not complete without a few activities that teach you about the history and culture of Cambodia. Depending on the length of your project, your supervisors will take you to various historical museums, the Royal Palace and the magnificent Angkor Temples. In addition, you’ll watch a traditional Apsara dance, eat local cuisine, and visit many of the buddhist temples and local markets.


Throughout all these activities, you’ll be with our staff and a group of teenagers your age.


Where will I be working in Cambodia?

Phnom Penh

You’ll be based in the capital city of Phnom Penh. The city is rich in history and culture, boasting beautiful scenery, lively locals, delicious food, and traditional buddhist temples to explore.


You’ll spend time doing outreach work at kindergartens, primary schools, and care centres. You’ll also work within local communities to raise awareness about the importance of hygiene, and how to prevent disease. All of your work is supervised, and you’ll have constant support from Projects Abroad staff.

Luchthaven transport, vluchten en visums

What are the aims and impact of our Public Health placements for teenagers in Cambodia?

The aim of the Public Health internship for teenagers in Cambodia is to provide you with practical healthcare skills, and give you the chance to help others at the same time.


In Cambodia, many people can’t afford basic healthcare, or they live too far away from hospitals and clinics. We’re working to bring basic medical services to these communities through our Public Health Project. We’re also sharing knowledge about the importance of hygiene, and how to prevent disease. We need your help to reach as many people as possible.


We’ll teach you basic medical skills, like how to measure blood pressure and blood sugar levels. You’ll use these skills at outreaches. Doctors and nurses use the information you gather to treat patients, and recommend further treatment. We’ll also teach you about common healthcare issues, so you can help with raising awareness. Through your work, you’ll gain a deeper insight into the healthcare challenges people face in Cambodia.


Join our Public Health High School Special in Cambodia and help empower communities by sharing knowledge and basic medical care.

Management plans

We hebben onze doelen en belangen van onze projecten uitgeschreven in onze Management Plans. Op deze manier kunnen we uitgebreid plannen welk werk moet gebeuren op elk project. Het helpt ook om het werk te meten en te evalueren wat we elk jaar bereikt hebben.


Het is uiteindelijk de bedoeling dat onze Management Plans de projecten effectiever maken. Je gaat daardoor deel uitmaken van een duurzaam project dat impact heeft waar het echt nodig is. Lees meer over onze Management Plans.


Onze impact

Elk jaar helpen duizenden jongeren en stagiaires om een verschil te maken over de hele wereld. Tijdens hun ervaring in het buitenland dragen ze bij tot de duurzame doelstellingen die we elk jaar vooropstellen, met de bedoeling om een duurzame impact te maken op de gemeenschappen.


Om alle verwezenlijkingen te verzamelen, ontwikkelen we elk jaar een Jongerenreizen Impact Report. Lees meer over alle projecten en hun impact in het afgelopen jaar.


Maaltijden en accommodatie

Je gaat accommodatie delen met andere Projects Abroad vrijwilligers en stagiaires in Phnom Penh. Op deze manier leer je de andere vrijwilligers en stagiaires beter kennen, kun je ervaringen uitwisselen, en samen de omgeving verkennen in je vrije tijd.


Tijdens onze Jongerenreizen proberen we ervoor te zorgen dat je een kamer deelt met minstens een andere vrijwilliger of stagiaire van hetzelfde geslacht en gelijke leeftijd. Jouw kamer is bescheiden maar comfortabel, proper en veilig.


De kostprijs van het project is inclusief drie maaltijden per dag.
