Cambodia

Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation with a population of over 16 million people. Despite being a low-income country, Cambodia improved the health outcome of its population immensely over the past 15 years through a stronger health system and increased financial risk protection. Improved key social determinants of health, especially economic growth and poverty reduction played key roles in increasing life expectancy (from 55 years in 1995 to 72 years in 2014) and improving quality of life. However, equitable health outcomes across geographical areas and the population have not yet been achieved, and out-of-pocket health expenditures remain high. The National Health Policy Strategy and Plan (2016-2020), part of the National Strategic Development Plan (2014-2018), addresses these issues. The UHC Partnership supports Cambodia by focusing on five key areas: Service delivery, non-communicable diseases and mental health, governance, strengthening the health workforce and improving health financing. Regarding service delivery, for example, activities include assessment of bottlenecks to, and potential solutions for, provision of essential care at the primary level.
