    01 Aug 99 RACHA A Trailer Study of the Cambodiam Midwives Association Continuing Education Project This is a study of the results of a continuing education project conducted by the CMA from July to October 1998. The results of this study include the retention of knowledge by the midwife trainees about the topics covered by the Continue Education Program; The extent to which the CEP skills have been used by the trainees in their government jobs and private practices; and the constrains confronted by midwives that limit more extensive use of these skills.
    01 Oct 00 Barbara Main Perceptions of Health Volunteers Throughtout Cambodia Very little has been documented about the role and effectiveness of health
    volunteers in Cambodia, with only limited local research having been completed. In Cambodia volunteer programs have been implemented with support from international organizations since 1992. Debate exists concerning the effectiveness of health volunteer programs, despite the continuing use of this method for involving communities in health education.

    The purpose of this project is to determine the perceptions held about
    community-based health volunteers, assist the national bodies that run these programs to critically analyse current VHV activities and suggest recommendations for future work with VHVs in a sustainable manner.

    Community Participation in Externally-Funded Health This article provides lessons learned on establishing effective community participation in two externally-funded, NGO-implemented, health projects working at district level in Cambodia. The first project was implemented in accordance with the Cambodian national guidelines on community participation. The second - using lessons and experiences gained as a result of the first project – worked with Buddhist pagoda volunteers. Primary research was conducted in both settings to assess the effectiveness of the two participation strategies. The article concludes that the success of community participation in externally-funded health projects with relatively short implementation timeframes, requires engagement with existing community-based organisations and agencies. In Cambodia, where Theravada Buddhism is the dominant religion, pagodas and associated volunteers appear to represent such an organisation. Community participation structured around pagoda volunteers – who are held in high esteem within their local communities – is more effective and sustainable than newly (and externally) established community structures with formally-elected representatives. Pagodas and associated volunteers in rural Cambodia offer the advantages of effective leadership, local organisation, resource mobilisation and management. It is recommended that programmes and agencies wishing to adopt community participation strategies in health utilise participatory research to identify the most appropriate local organisation to lead such initiatives CHP__Community_participation_in_Externally_funded_health_projects.doc

    11 Mar 08 RACHA Promising Upshot of CBHI Project in Pursat In response to the national guidelines of the MoH to implement Community-Based Health Insurance in Cambodia which is one of the key components of the Health Financing Strategy of the government, the Reproductive and Child Health Alliance (RACHA), an NGO primarily funded by USAID, launched its Community-Based Health Insurance (CBHI) pilot project in Tasah, Pursat Province in August 2006. The assessment conducted six months after its implementation showed some positive results. The project in its tender phase has sprouted some promising impression. Actual records from the HC disclosed that adult CBHI members constitute 20% of the total clients served by Tasas HC in terms of OPD consultations and check-up. Children with CBHI coverage comprise 15% of the total pediatric OPD consultation. Promising_Upshop_CBHI_Project_in_Pursat-RACHA.pdf
