Audit of USAID/Cambodia’s Better Health Services Project.

Country: Cambodia
Fiscal Year: 2011
Agency: USAID

Poor health limits economic opportunity and contributes to ongoing poverty. Cambodians spend approximately 11 percent of their household income on health care every year, much of it in pharmacies and drug shops. Cambodia also has among the highest maternal mortality and HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in Southeast Asia. Other health indicators, such as life expectancy and child and infant mortality, also lag behind most Asian nations.

Increasing health care efficiency by supporting reform efforts and using partners more effectively would help to improve the lives of Cambodia’s poor and vulnerable citizens.

To help tackle these problems, in December 2008 USAID/Cambodia initiated the 5-year, $33.6 million Better Health Services Project. The project intends to strengthen an integrated, decentralized health care delivery system by institutionalizing better capacity at the provincial and operational district levels. The project will harness the considerable existing resources and expertise of the public, NGOs, and community organizations working together at the operational and service delivery level.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Cambodia’s Better Health Services Project is improving health care capacity at the provincial and operational district levels and supporting health care reform efforts to improve the quality and efficacy of key programs.
