Dropout Prevention Pilot Program Findings and Policy Dialogue Workshop
July 1, 2015

Your Excellency Im Koch, Secretary of State, Ministry of Education Youth and Sport

Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you today to this workshop.  Giving every Cambodian child the opportunity to complete their education and reduce the number who dropout is a priority for the country.  Education is a pathway to better opportunities for every person, their community, and their nation.  That is why USAID is an important supporter of education programs around the world.  

Through SDPP, we work closely with the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport to achieve Cambodia’s Millennium Development Goal of  Universal Access to Basic Education by 2015.  We work together to increase the number of children that are able to receive quality education.  One of the key ways we do that is to help Cambodia spread the use of information communication technology – or ICT – to all levels of the school system with a particular emphasis on secondary schools.

Of the many challenges we face as a global community – and there are many – health crises constitute among the most serious.  Today, the headlines tell us of the toll that Ebola has taken in West Africa.  Not long ago the world faced repeated outbreaks of SARS, multiple influenzas, not to mention the continued threat posed by HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, measles – I could go on. But I won’t.  What I do want to point out is that our single greatest defense against these threats is our health workers.  These men and women fight on the front lines every day at great risk to themselves to protect us.  Helping them to become a coordinated, disciplined, qualified, and effective fighting force is what this gathering is all about.

Cambodia Country Development Cooperation Strategy 2014-2018

September 25, 2014

Cambodia, a country of just over 15 million people in Southeast Asia, has made great progress after 20 years of rebuilding from decades of civil war, enjoying steady economic growth rates over the recent decade and significant improvements in quality of life. Having once had the region’s highest HIV rate, Cambodia cut its prevalence rate in half from 1998 to 2010 and has made incredible advances in education and the fight to save infant and mothers’ lives.

Cambodia has made substantial progress towards achieving its Millennium Development Goals, including reaching the targets for Goals 4 and 5 years ahead of the target dates.  I would like to congratulate the Royal Government of Cambodia, in particular the Ministry of Health, for its leadership in these efforts. The deployment of midwives to all health facilities and the endorsement of the midwifery incentive scheme are recognized as driving forces behind this great success.
