APHEDA has been working in Cambodia since 1985 in programs of poverty reduction and rural development in 2 major sectors: technical/ vocational education and training; and agriculture, forestry and fishery; and also in women's health, HIV and nutrition.

APHEDA is currently implementing sustainable livelihood vocational and agricultural training programs with partners in 7 provinces and Phnom Penh. Our partners are Women in Development centres (WIDCs) in Battambang, Kampot, Preah Vihear, Kampong Cham and Oddar Meanchey provinces; Kampot departments of Agriculture Forestry and Fishery and Industry Mines and Energy; Kandal Department of Education Youth and Sport; Cambodian Women for Peace and Development and Cambodian Women's Development Agency.

Basic nutrition education has been integrated into all the vocational and agricultural training programs since 2003, targeting the approximately 2,500 trainees for 2003-2004. The nutrition education component has the following objectives:

• decreasing malnutrition, particularly in children under 5 years and women of reproductive age
• increasing women's knowledge about health and nutrition particularly health during pregnancy, and child care practices in the target areas
• strengthening community health networks through training and capacity building of nutrition educators and through links with local health centres.
• increasing knowledge of nutritional issues in the wider community.




Project time frame of Basic nutrition Education program: January 2003 to December 2004
