Title:

Cambodia Child Survival Strategy

Abstract:

The Cambodia Child Survival Strategy (CCSS) outlines the approach to reducing child mortality in Cambodia and achieving the Cambodia Millennium Development Goal 4, which aims to reduce underfive mortality rate (U5MR) to 65 per 1000 live births by 20151. The strategy aims to achieve universal coverage of a limited package of essential evidence-based, cost-effective interventions that impact on child mortality. Most Cambodian households have low income and thus striving for universal coverage of child survival interventions will reduce inequities. In contrast, provision of a comprehensive range of available high technology expensive interventions to only the few members of the population that can afford them will not significantly impact on child mortality and only lead to greater inequities. Therefore the aim of the CCSS is “few for all rather than more for few”.
