Dr. Duggan had been involved with the KSFH for a number of years prior to forming HCVI. He has worked jointly with Face to Face for a number of years and has personally sponsored a number of projects similar to those described above.
In July of 2014, senior leadership came to the conclusion that HCVI could be more successful in achieving its stated mission goals in Cambodia by realigning with the National Pediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and transitioned from the KSFH at this time.
