“Are you a Medical Doctor with public health experience? Are you interested in helping people with diabetes and hypertension prevent disease complications at low cost to them? If yes, please read on….…!

Background: the Cambodian non profit NGO MoPoTsyo Patient Information Centre is active since 2005. Nowadays, in 12 provinces (28 Operational Districts) >30,000 Cambodian patients are registered as member. The majority are diabetic with other health problems such as hypertension and dyslipidemias. Membership entitles them to benefit from “peer educator networks for diabetes and hypertension”, that cooperate with government public services in remote areas of Cambodia. The networks enhance the medical services there through community-based “peer educator networks” helping organize public service delivery by qualified government staff: such as out-patient care at contracted CPA1 or CPA2 referral hospitals, (counseling, self-management education), but also access to a range of essential but affordable good quality laboratory tests, appointments for medical consultations and, importantly affordable prescription medication (including insulin). Medical supplies come with small essential materials and explanations that patients need for successful chronic disease “self-management”.  Almost all (>90%) of this patient-centered care system is financed by voluntary small contributions from the members. After the Ministry of Health had included this care model into its first National Strategic Plan for Prevention and Control of NCD 2013-2020, the WHO and Worldbank selected it for their international collection of “best practices” to inspire other countries coping with the burden from chronic NCD among their people,
