Professor Tung Rathavy, Director of National Maternal and Child Health Centre

Distinguished colleagues, ladies and gentlemen

It is my great pleasure to join you this morning to say a few words to open this important workshop.

Let me start by thanking the officials of the National Maternal and Child Health Centre and our colleagues from the USAID-funded Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program for making this research possible and organising this important event to share the results.  I must also recognize the vital role and contributions of the public sector health providers – doctors, midwives, and all who support them – who work each day to protect the health and safety of Cambodia’s mothers and newborns in health facilities across the country.

The goal of USAID’s support to technology in Cambodia is to bring tangible benefits to citizens and effect positive change through improved communications and access to information.   I hope that as you participate in the BarCamp, you will consider how you can combine your skills, what you learn here, and emerging technologies to contribute to a brighter future for Cambodia.  This is a chance for Cambodia to become, in the words of USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, “a country that believes that dedication and innovation are the only things needed to bridge the gap between the inconceivable and the achievable.”

USAID Cambodia is implementing one of President Obama’s key initiatives, Feed the Future to fight global hunger and malnutrition and help communities pull themselves out of poverty.  Nowhere is this more important than here in Cambodia.  We know that malnutrition and lack of early child development continues to hold back the country’s children.  We also know that one out of four Cambodians lives below the poverty line and many more very close to the line.  Think about what kind of opportunities await once we eliminate these challenges.

Official presentation of USAID-funded Medical Equipment to Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope
June 12, 2013

On behalf of USAID, it is my great pleasure to join you today for this special event, as we complete the handover of critical medical equipment to the Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope.  I would like to thank our colleagues at the Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope for organizing today’s event.  I would also like to thank our colleagues from the Ministry of Health and the Australian Embassy for joining us as well as commend their combined efforts to improve women’s health in Cambodia.

When the Sihanouk Hospital requested USAID assistance to procure equipment to open a Women’s Health Clinic, we recognized the opportunity to contribute toward improving women’s health in Cambodia.  The Sihanouk Hospital provides free medical care to Cambodians who have no other options for care.  It is a critical and exemplary mission.  To date, the hospital has provided more than one million free patient consultations.
