Title:

Final Evaluation Northeast Cambodia Child Survival Program

Abstract:

The Northeast Cambodia Child Survival Program was implemented by Partners for Development (PFD) between October 2002 and September 2004. The program aimed to improve the health and reduce mortality of approximately 17,000 children under five years of age in the Chhlong Operational District (OD) of Kratie Province, Cambodia. The program promoted breastfeeding, immunization, improved nutrition and micronutrient intake and improved case management of diarrheal diseases. The program's primary strategy was to increase caretakers' case management abilities and promote improved health behaviors through community health education managed by a large network of Village Health Volunteers (VHVs) supported by Health Centre staff. The evaluators concluded that the program achieved its goals of improved child health and reduced morbity of children under five in the target OD. Some of the key success factors included building community ownership, motivation of VHVs, building trust relationships, and effective behaviour change methods used.
