Nutrition Result: Malnutrition is perhaps the greatest development challenge affecting in Cambodia. Of children under 5 years old, 40% are stunted through chronic malnutrition, 28% are underweight and 11% wasted. Although some progress is evident in event years, malnutrition rates remain stubbornly and alarmingly high.

What We Do

The infant mortality rate has declined

Between 2000 and 2010, Cambodia has made significant progress in improving the health of its

children.

The infant mortality rate has declined from 95 to 45 deaths per 1,000 live births, setting Cambodia on track to reach its Millennium Development to reduce child mortality.

The Poor Countryside families in

Siem Reap are Difficult to Escape Poverty

Poverty leads to a lack of materials and knowledge for proper sanitation and hygiene, causing Cambodian children to still suffer from high rates of infectious diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia. Poverty is also an important barrier to other more direct causes of mortality: proper nutrition and health care. Tackling poverty and reducing financial barriers to health care require new approaches and different strategies to help save children’s lives.

New Ways to deal the issues today

Inequities in health and nutrition outcomes and in

health care utilization continue to persist between rural and urban areas in Siem Reap between people with different educational levels.  Despite reductions, poverty remains one of the most important underlying causes of high maternal and child mortality and under nutrition. One in three Cambodians still lives below the poverty line and 20 per cent of Cambodians cannot afford enough food.

The High Challenge Rate of Children under Five

 Progress has been attributed to successful immunization programs and breastfeeding promotion, and factors such as poverty reduction, improved education and better roads. Nevertheless, child mortality levels in Cambodia remain high by regional standards. Every day, an estimated 50 children under five die, mainly because of preventable and treatable diseases, such as diarrhea and pneumonia.

Fighting Infections of Poor Countryside Children

Immunization against deadly infections is reaching more children, especially in remote areas. Child immunization rates are routinely above 90 per cent, but less than half of children receive other preventive services such as deworming and vitamin A supplementationDonate now...
