    01 Dec 01 RACHA Improving Access to Voluntary Surgical Contraception Services In Kampot, Pursat, and Siem Reap Provinces, Cambodia Voluntary Surgical Contraception (VSC) for tubal ligation (TL) and non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV), although showing a slight increase since its introduction in 1997 (Kampot, Pursat and Siem Reap), remains quite low. Among the responsible factors are lack of information for both health staffs and potential clients and limited access. The Ministry of Health, with technical assistance from RACHA, designed a pilot study in order to evaluate cost as a factor of access and an influence on the acceptance rate. During a six-month period, clients' travel costs and hospital fees were paid by RACHA. A potential candidate and their partner received counseling by trained midwives. When they made their choice for VSC, both partners signed an informed consent form. Surgeons filled in a special questionnaire for each man and women requesting VSC. Information sessions were organized in each referral hospital and posters provided to the health centers, announcing the free services for the period July 1 – December 31, 2001. _15_Studies__VSC_Full_Report_in_English.pdf
