In December 2010, OpASHA opened its first center in Cambodia. The country’s tuberculosis burden is one of the highest in the world with 764 cases per 100,000 people. High rate of HIV infection among new TB cases makes TB one of the primary public health issues in Cambodia today. According to the World Bank, Cambodia’s per capita income is just $2.59 a day. Affordable and accessible public health care is essential in Cambodia, and OpASHA’s model is well-suited to fill the dire need found in Cambodia’s most impoverished and isolated communities.

In Cambodia, OpASHA currently serves 2.25 million disadvantaged people, providing TB education, diagnosis, counseling, and treatment.
