Improving maternal and newborn care
The Cambodian Government developed Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) Improvement Plans (2010-2015, 2016-2010) to further reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. Moreover, the Fast Track Initiative (FTI) Road Map for Reducing Maternal and Newborn Mortality (2016-2020) provided the conceptual framework for this project. GFA implemented the TC module “Improving maternal and newborn care”, with the objective that "Families with small children are increasingly benefitting from improved maternal and child health services".
GFA supported the Ministry of Health (MoH) and its implementing structures at provincial and district levels. Core partners at decentral level were the four Provincial Health Departments (PHD) of the target provinces Kampot, Kampong Thom, Kep and Kampong Speu. Operational Districts (OD) and selected referral hospitals and health centers provided EmONC.
