Cambodia has been on a steady path towards development for over 20 years, having achieved many important milestones. Significant improvements have been made in the quality of the country’s healthcare resulting in better health for its people. Important gains have been made in maternal and child health, and in the fight against infectious disease, including tuberculosis and malaria.

As Cambodia continues down its path of democracy, the relationship between elected representatives and their constituents has become increasingly important Cambodian citizens now have a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of their elected representatives at the national and local levels.

My congratulations to the Ministry of Health and the Health Professional Councils who have worked with many to make this law a reality. I commend the Councils’ leadership and I encourage all of you to continue to work together to support the implementation of this new law. The passing of this new law marks an important milestone. It demonstrates Cambodia’s commitment to strengthening health professions and ensuring the quality of health services around the country. It will also help the Councils by strengthening their partnership with the Ministry of Health - particularly the provincial government - and health development partners. 

Remarks by Polly Dunford, USAID Mission Director, Wonders of Mekong Project Launch
February 7, 2017

Thank you for the opportunity to be with you for the launch of the “Wonders of Mekong project: A Foundation for Sustainable Development and Resilience”. It is my pleasure to have another opportunity to celebrate our partnership between the Royal Government of Cambodia and the United States. The goal of this particular project is to research and document the internationally significant natural and human capital assets of the Mekong and to demonstrate how conservation, that is, stewardship of Cambodia’s river and lake systems, is vital to Cambodia’s economic growth and the well-being of its people. We will need your dedication, determination and a real commitment to secure the success of this project. 

Our coming together today provides a great opportunity to reflect on how truly wonderful the Mekong is, on the advances Cambodia is making for its conservation and on how together we will  continue to strengthen the health and vibrancy of the river for the people of Cambodia, the region and even the globe.
