USAID Cambodia input for McGovern Dole applications

USAID Cambodia aims to share relevant information to facilitate efforts to align United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) McGovern Dole efforts in Cambodia with ongoing and planned USAID Cambodia activities.

USAID Cambodia works in several areas that are relevant to the McGovern Dole program, specifically in the areas of Feed the Future (FTF), the Global Health Initiative (GHI), nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and basic education. An overview of our work in these sectors can be found here: https://www.usaid.gov/cambodia/our-work

USAID Cambodia’s FTF efforts are concentrated in Pursat, Battambang, Kampong Thom and Siem Reap provinces. Current efforts focus on three value chains including rice, fish and vegetables. The 2016-2020 activities are currently under design, but are expected to focus in the same geographic area and on the same value chains.

The U.S. government, through President Obama’s global food security initiative known as “Feed the Future,” strives to increase agricultural production, incomes, nutrition, and the resiliency of rural households.  I am very pleased to inform you all that Cambodia was one of nineteen countries in the world selected to participate in this initiative.

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, 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.
