Title:

NATIONAL VITAMIN A POLICY GUIDELINES

Abstract:

Although Cambodia has seen a decrease in under-five mortality the rate remains unacceptably high with infant mortality 65 per 1000 live births and under-fi ve mortality 83 per 1000 live births.The Cambodia Child Survival Strategy (CCSS) outlines Cambodia’s approach to reducing child mortality and achieving the Cambodia Millennium Development Goal 4, which aims to reduce under-fi ve mortality to 65 per 1000 live births by 2015. Achieving universal coverage of a limited package of essential evidence based cost effective interventions will have a positive impact on child mortality. Vitamin A supplementation is one of the twelve score-card interventions of the Child Survival Strategy.
