Remarks by Polly Dunford, Mission Director, USAID Cambodia, Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Annual Meeting
June 13, 2017

First, when we talk about nutrition, we usually highlight alarming numbers and note disturbing trends. One of the most powerful examples I use for Cambodia is that one out of every three children under five is stunted. Last night, I was reviewing some nutrition notes at home, and when I read this statistic, I thought of my three wonderful daughters, who were playing around me, and I reflected that one would likely have been stunted if circumstances were different and I was a mother in Cambodia.

Remarks by Sean Callahan, Deputy Mission Director, USAID Cambodia, Program Launch for Early Grade Reading Support to  the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport
May 31, 2017

I appreciate that I am looking out across a broad set of people and organizations who have committed themselves to work towards a common goal to help Cambodian children get a better education. When USAID began looking into supporting the Ministry of Education in early grade reading, we were impressed with all of the work that has been done to help children learn to read. I want to salute the Ministry on the efforts and progress made to date in advancing early grade reading.

Remarks by Sheri-Nouane Duncan-Jones, Director,  Office of Public Health and Education, USAID Cambodia, Dissemination Workshop on Integrated Behavioral and Biological Survey among Female Entertainment Workers in Cambodia in 2017
May 22, 2017

These periodic surveys of HIV behavior and prevalence have been very influential for programming. They provide us with the latest data on progress as well as show us gaps in HIV prevention, testing, and treatment. As you may recall, the 2010 survey had a great impact on the shape of USAID HIV programming.

Remarks by Jean-Marc Gorelick, Deputy Director, Office of Democracy  and Governance, USAID Cambodia, Consultation Workshop on Implication of Labor Migration Policy between Cambodia and Thailand
May 19, 2017

Human trafficking is one of the most important human rights challenges of our time. It preys upon the vulnerable, breaks down the rule of law, and corrupts global commerce. It is a serious transitional crime which destroys the lives of millions of people worldwide each year including Cambodia.

Remarks by Mr. Noah Mathew Sprafkin, Maternal Child Health/Family Planning/Nutrition Team Leader, USAID Cambodia, Orientation Workshop on Regulations for Health Practitioners Law
May 11, 2017

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, health development partners, and you, representatives from the garment factories and private sector.
