The GIZ Muskoka project supports the Ministry of Health in improving Maternal and Newborn Care with a focus on Emergency Obstetric Care. The project runs until 04/2019 and works in the provinces of Kampot, Kampong Speu, Kampong Thom and Kep.

In order to improve the skills and to build capacity of the Cambodian midwives through a series of Emergency Obstetric Care hands-on trainings, GIZ partners with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).

The Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (CMNH-LSTM) has designed an Emergency Obstetric & Newborn Care “Skills & Drills” training to develop the capacity of existing healthcare providers to recognize and effectively manage women and babies requiring emergency obstetric care. The course covers the five major causes of maternal death – haemorrhage, sepsis, eclampsia, obstructed labour and complications of abortion and also immediate newborn care. It also covers all  medical interventions required for basic and comprehensive emergency obstetric and newborn care .

It recognises the very real barriers to accessing care that women in resource poor countries have, as well as with the realisation that many healthcare providers trying to provide Skilled Attendance at Birth (SBA) and Emergency (or Essential) Obstetric and New-born Care (EmONC), work in difficult circumstances with limited resources.

A series of 7 emergency obstetric and newborn care trainings are conducted at the training unit of the National Maternal Child Health Centre (NMCHC) between March and May 2017. A total of 420 health staff are trained.

In addition, skills laboratories, equipped with the same material and mannequins used during the training will be established in the provincial referral hospitals of Kampot, Kampong Thom and Kampong Speu. These enable the trained staff to practice and continue learning in their own provinces.

Phnom Penh residents start changing their behavior from eating normal vegetable and fruits which contained chemical residue to consume organic products. Though the prices of organic products are higher than the normal products, some people still prefer to eat since they know these products are good for health.

“The sales volume of vegetables and fruits has increased from 100kg a day to 300kg a day,” said Canady Mao, an Assistant Director of Khmer Organic Cooperative (KOC). More>>>

“The sales volume of vegetables and fruits has increased from 100kg a day to 300kg a day,” said Canady Mao, an Assistant Director of Khmer Organic Cooperative (KOC).

In respond to the increasing demand from buyers, KOC start doing contract farming with 20 local farmers in Kampot Province. This will help to improve the income generation of the farmers and to ensure the products quality meets the organic standard and the quantity meets the demand of the market. Until now, there are around 100 different types of organic products for sale at the KOC shop.

“Most buyers come here to buy organic vegetables even though the vegetables do not look good from the outer appearance and have higher price,” said Ms Mao.

KOC also has the strategy and plan to enlarge the scope from working with 20 farmers to many more farmers in other potential provinces. Moreover, KOC is also working collaboratively with community and non-government organizations to promote community’s products. Those products are composed of leafy vegetable, fruit vegetable and processing products.

“Applying organic farming method is not only a way to generate income, but it is also good for human health because we eat safe food,” said Mr. Ieng Sotheara, a Founder of KOC.
