Why do we work with the Cambodian community to promote liver health?
The Cambodian community represent a priority population, experiencing a high prevalence of hepatitis B. Tepy Hoeung’s work as a community educator brings in-language workshops to the community, where she promotes the importance of liver health, the importance of getting tested and treated, as well as how to prevent hepatitis B with vaccinations.
Tepy’s work is well-received, with some quotes being:
