Partnership with Curtin University

In 2014 a new and unique partnership was launched between Curtin University in Western Australia, and the Handa Foundation called the Go Global Program. The Go Global Program is designed to bring college students in their final year of study to have a hands-on medical experience with patients and staff in Battambang, Cambodia.

Curtin University trains students to be professionals in many fields including nursing, pharmacy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. The students stay for six weeks at a time and are able to directly apply what they have learned. This is also a special partnership because the Honorary Chairman of The Handa Foundation, Dr. Haruhisa Handa, is himself a graduate of Curtin University.
