    In addition to completing our project in Uganda, we had enough funding to carry out an initial training project in Phnom Penh Cambodia. We trained 39 physicians, medical students midwives and nurses in VIA (visual inspection with acetic acid). We were able to equip one center with a thermocoagulator and LEEP instrumentation.
