Cambodia Midwife Preceptor Project
Strengthening Cambodia's midwifery sector
Through the placement of Midwifery Preceptor Advisers and Midwifery Educators, we have been working with Cambodia's University of Health Science's Technical School for Medical Care (TSMC) since 2009 to reduce the country's maternal-infant mortality rates through improved safe motherhood and birthing programs and services.
Please note that we are not currently recruiting for this program. To stay informed of future opportunities, please register for job alerts here.

Working in partnership
With funding from AusAID, through the Australian Volunteers for International Development program, the project is supporting the TSMC's vision to implement a new three-year course for Cambodia's midwifery sector. This effort will improve the quality of midwifery education in Cambodia and strengthen maternal-infant care.
Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr recently visited the program. Read more here
