Good Medicine

More Cambodian babies will live to see their first birthdays, thanks to the efforts of doctors like Ng Kee Chong and Anette Jacobsen.

Our partners (such as Anette Jacobsen, centre) and volunteers are a fundamental part of such positive change.

Ng Kee Chong and Anette Jacobsen from Singapore’s KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital are among a number of medical professionals who regularly volunteer for SIF projects to improve healthcare in developing communities.

Since 2004, the SIF, KK Hospital and Cambodia’s National Pediatric Hospital (NPH) have been working together to boost paediatric care in Phnom Penh.

In 2008, this partnership contributed to the infant mortality rate at the NPH dropping by 22 percentage points.

Our partners and volunteers are a fundamental part of such positive change.

Their dedication and passion enable us to bring together medical teams from Singapore, Cambodia and countries around Asia to learn from one another.

The good we have achieved with KK Hospital and the NPH is just one example of what we’re able to do when we connect with individuals, organisations and corporations who share our vision of a better world.

Cementing many years of collaboration, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in December 2011, agreeing to work together even more closely to build the capacity of overseas health professionals and community groups to deliver quality healthcare services to women and children across Asia.
