The development and endorsement of the Strategic Plan for Training the Social Service Workforce is a huge milestone in the coordinated efforts to strengthen Cambodia’s social service workforce. The plan allows for the development of a standard, competency-based training curriculum to upskill individuals. It does this by providing the knowledge, skills and abilities they need to better ensure that quality social services are provided throughout the country. This ensures that children are in safe, nurturing, family-based care - which is our shared, ultimate goal. It is important to highlight other complementary efforts to strengthen child protection services in Cambodia.

I’m delighted to join you today to celebrate the accomplishments of the USAID-supported EQHA work in collaboration with the Royal Government of Cambodia and other partners to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The U.S. government is proud of our long history of productive cooperation with Cambodia to strengthen health systems and improve the quality of the country’s health services.  Together we strive to improve maternal and child health, eradicate malaria, prevent and treat HIV, improve nutrition for mothers and children, and expand access to TB screening and treatment.  Most recently, we’ve worked together to tackle infectious disease emergencies such as COVID-19.  Today, we celebrate the joint efforts and accomplishments of EQHA and the Ministry of Health in this response.

As we continue to live and operate during the COVID-19 pandemic, partnerships such as the Capacity Development Fund remain critical to our response and prevention efforts.  I’d like to take a moment to recognize the Royal Government of Cambodia’s progress in preparing Cambodia to manage outbreaks as well as the country’s impressive vaccination campaign.
