It’s about economic security.

Women are the bedrock of a healthy, vibrant world. When a Khmer woman survives pregnancy and childbirth, she and her baby, her family and their entire village blossom. The Maternal and Child Assistance Program demonstrates the power of partners to improve maternal and child health in remote, chronically-poor Cambodian hamlets.  Here, organizations collaborate and share the common goal of ending preventable maternal and child deaths in Khmer rural settings. It is a look to the future through the eyes of Khmer mothers and their babies in need. 

The health challenges range from improving maternal and child mortality rates through traditional and non-traditional sources, introducing transformative health practices which affect high-risk populations living in rural environments, maintaining nutritional diets within the villages, accessing potable water for everyday family needs, initiating proper human waste disposal treatment systems, using affordable renewable energies to support the use of refrigeration in hamlets, and improving economic security of village families.
