In Cambodia, the proportions of the people below the “absolute poverty line”, which indicates the requirements necessary to afford minimal standards of life, are estimated to be 17% in rural areas, 13% in urban areas (except for Phnom Penh), and 3% in Phnom Penh (in 2004). Since private insurances in Cambodia does not always meet their needs, some have to pay their entire medical costs out of their pocket and many cannot receive adequate medical care. This is why we run the “AKAHIGE” project to provide medical care to all the people. The word “AKAHIGE” is from the Kurosawa movie, “Akahige”, which describes the love and of life through the communication between a doctor and his patients.

CSR activity


For the people who cannot receive adequate medical care or education, we are continuously visiting local cities and doing seminars to provide healthcare education and to supply goods. In addition, the person who recognized that there is no ability to pay will be taken to the hospital. The medical care which can be done only by us will make the auxiliary of the treatment costs. We are going to create a new scheme where people can operate a hospital, train their staff, and build a local system on their own without support so they can get away from the current situations; ”medicine that involves only charity” and ”adequate medical care is only for the wealthy population”.

Regional Differences in Admission Rates of Emergency Patients Who Visited a Private General Hospital in the Capital City of Cambodia: A Three-Year Observational Study


Yurie Kobashi, Sophathya Cheam, Yoshifumi Hayashi, Masaharu Tsubokura, Veyleang Ly, Chanakara Noun, Takehiro Kouzuma, Buntongyi Nit, Manabu Okawada





A total of 6167 patients who visited the emergency department at SJH between January 2017 and September 2019 were included in the analysis. The proportion of patients who needed to be hospitalized or transferred increased with the distance from the capital. The proportion of patients who finished consultation decreased with the distance from the capital (P < .01: Chi- square test). The results of the logistic regression analysis showed that the admission rate in rural areas was significantly higher only among males as compared to that of the capital in multivariate analyses adjusted for age, time, and season.
