The HoHA Cambodia project started in 2014.
The training offered to local health workers is called Biomechanical Therapy Levels 1 and 2 and is hosted by partner organisation New Life Foundation in Pnom Penh. The original Myotherapy training was retitled Biomechanical Therapy (BTH) to allow for the inclusion of joint treatment as well as specific muscle treatments. A 3-year program is currently being delivered.
It also includes appropriate and relevant grassroots training in community welfare services including first aid, primary healthcare, sanitation, nutrition, advocacy and social care training. The long-term goal is to establish a similar training centre and clinic providing Biomechanical Therapy training and treatment in each of the 25 provinces in Cambodia.
27 students have now graduated from the STTEP program and 5,914 treatments in the community have been recorded in 2014 over a period of 14 months.
