Preventing and Responding to Child Abandonment at Hospitals

In this two-part video, Sorn Sokchea discusses the medical social work program run by Angkor Hospital for Children in Cambodia, that aims to prevent and respond to child abandonment with the goal of strengthening families to provide adequate care for their children.

In part one, Sokchea shares insights from the social work unit’s key learning around what leads to abandonment, how to work with families to identify and solve underlying issues, how to engage and communicate with families and how to identify risk indicators for abandonment.

In part two, Sokchea shares insights on how to conduct family tracing in the event abandonment has already occurred, including identifying leads and key sources of information.

This video is part of a series of practitioner learning videos from Cambodia.
