This session will explore the significant progress Cambodia has made in achieving universal health care (UHC), particularly through user fees and social safety net schemes, which are critical for helping citizens avoid health‐related poverty. However, achieving UHC also requires improving the quality of services.

In Cambodia, this means working with the general public to ensure that services meet their expectations and collaborating with the private sector, which is often the public’s first point of care. With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development, several organizations are delivering a multifaceted and comprehensive approach to improvements at the national and subnational levels: the FHI 360-led Enhancing Quality of Healthcare Activity; World Health Organization;  World Bank, which represents the Health Equity and Quality Improvement Project under the leadership of the Ministry of Health’s Hospital Services Department; and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). Innovative methods of improving public- and private-sector health care include strengthening health regulations (accreditation, licensing, relicensing), using a nationwide quality enhancement monitoring system and striving for continuous quality improvement.
