Cambodia - Health Sector Support Project (English)

The Health Sector Support Project for Cambodia aims to 1) develop affordable quality health services with emphasis on primary health care and first referral services in rural areas; 2) increase the utilization of health services by the poor; 3) mitigate the effects of infectious disease epidemics and of malnutrition; and 4) improve the health sector's capacity and performance. There are three project components. The first comprises two sub-components. The project improves accessibility and quality of health services by rehabilitating and constructing civil works, and financing equipment and maintenance. It improves service quality by funding training for the minimum and complementary package of activities. Moreover, it provides funding to help solve current problems with drug quality, utilization, and availability throughout the health services. This component also focuses on helping poor individuals and households to afford health services. The second component benefits the poor through: i) developing primary health care (preventative and curative) services; ii) financing health facilities in the rural areas of the country; iii) strengthening the infectious diseases control programs; iv) increasing nutrition activities; and v) improving procurement and distribution of drugs. The tuberculosis, malaria, dengue and STIs/HIV/AIDS programs will receive support. The third component funds oversight of the policy, legislative, and regulatory frameworks.
