How a Cambodian eye hospital became more inclusive
In recent years, CARITAS Takeo Eye Hospital (CTEH) in Cambodia has worked hard to be more inclusive of people with disabilities. While there have been some challenges along the way, the overall results of the new practices appear to be very positive.
The first change came in 2008, when the old, run-down eye hospital was replaced with a brand new facility. The major donor, CBM, encouraged the local partner CARITAS Cambodia to grasp the opportunity to design the new building so that it would meet high standards of accessibility.
