I’ll begin by thanking Minister Aaron Motsoaledi and his team at the Department of Health for inviting me to give a message of support on behalf of USAID and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief; better known to most of you as PEPFAR. It is an honor for me to join you today to mark World Prematurity Day.  Maternal and child health is a significant focus of the U.S. government throughout Southern Africa.  USAID works closely with many South African partners on maternal and child HIV prevention and care and treatment programs, with a strong emphasis on reducing mother to child transmission, and safeguarding orphans and vulnerable children.

This launch of the Hermetic Storage Technology campaign represents one of the most important goals shared by the United States and Kenya: to transform the lives of millions of Kenyans by ensuring that they live in food secure households, eat nutritious foods and have opportunities for sustainable prosperity within their communities.

Today, over one billion people living in the Asia-Pacific region are able to access critical information and communication technologies that just a decade earlier were largely out of reach. In the next five years, more people in Asia will access the Internet for the first time than have done so in the previous 30 years. That’s an incredible statistic – a fact that will have a profound effect on the rate of economic, political and social change in the region.

A very good morning to you all. It gives me great pleasure to be here and to extend a warm welcome to everyone at this two-day Training of Facilitators on the ASEAN SME Academy. First of all, let me convey my appreciation to H. E. Dr. Cham Prasidh, Senior Minister for Industry and Handicrafts, and his efficient colleagues in the General Department of SMEs and Handicrafts. The Ministry is a key partner in this event, co-hosting this training, and identifying all the participants.

It is an honor to be here today and to be speaking on behalf of development partners. We are encouraged by the great progress that Cambodia has made in reducing hunger and stunting in Cambodia since 2000. The recent 2016 Global Hunger Index Report results show that Cambodia is one of three countries with largest percentage of hunger reduction among the 50 countries with serious levels of hunger. This improvement is great news.

The fact that we are here together as we prepare for Cambodia’s Third National Nutrition Day. This year’s theme -- “Improved Sanitation, Hygiene and Nutrition Make Children Grow” – is not only a fact, it’s a call to action. It is also a strong testament to Cambodia’s continued commitment to improve nutrition for mothers and children.

As many of you know, the Global Health Security Agenda is an international partnership that aims to create a world safe and secure from infectious disease threats. Since launching in February 2014, more than 50 countries have endorsed it; and through it, the U.S. Government has committed to establishing a global capacity to address and respond to devastating diseases from animals, humans, and the environment.

Wednesday, November 2, 2016 - 9:00am

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for WorldFish, the Fisheries Administration, and USAID to share with the public information about this important project. The Rice Field Fisheries Project is another example of the U.S. government’s continued commitment to help Cambodia reach three significant milestones in its economic development.
