After more thirty years of civil war and genocide by the Pol Pot regime, it is hard to find the right people with knowledgeable and skillful on GCP standard clinical scientism. PHD acknowledged by ministry of interior in 2015 and our Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) number is FWA00024116. “In the US government contracting system, PHD obtains DUNS 659700644 and CAGE SAJB9. These are now recognized in the System for Award Management (SAM) in www.sam.gov .”
Malaria in Cambodia has developed remarkable drug resistance in recent decades, making it a focus of global public health efforts to contain and eliminate the disease. Malaria is in part a legacy of the years of civil war and genocide that began under the Pol Pot regime in 1975. After the war, large swaths of northwestern Cambodia remained lawless and vastly underserved, making them ripe breeding grounds for malaria parasites. At the same time, the devastation led to tremendous shortages of qualified health personnel to provide even the most basic medical care. In this environment, malaria was permitted to flourish largely unopposed and developed resistance to many of the currently available drugs. This problem persists in many areas of Cambodia today, due to a lack of trained personnel with the knowledge and skills to take a systematic and comprehensive approach to elimination. PHD aims to bridge this gap by providing qualified allied health personnel well trained in the diagnosis and treatment of malaria who live in the areas affected. PHD also has the necessary expertise to conduct clinically relevant research to International Conference on Harmonization Good Clinical Practice (ICH GCP) standards.
PHD is not only committed to working in communities with the greatest needs to support malaria elimination, PHD also works on infectious and vector-borne disease control. This includes pathogens requiring emergency response such as the novel Coronavirus outbreak currently ongoing, H5N1, pandemic h1n1, dengue fever and others. We have worked closely with government rapid response teams to achieve these objectives. Over the last several years, PHD had supported public health responses to influenza and dysentery. We also provide ongoing support for the dengue surveillance program in collaboration with the Communicable Disease Control Department, Ministry of Health, Cambodia. This work is conducted first and foremost at the community level. Recently, we have successfully conducted these programs in 4 referral hospitals. Our experiences from this recent initiative will serve as the blueprint to rapidly expand to other sites.
