Australia to give Cambodia fresh aid

ABC Radio, Australia
Australia has committed $A3.5 million dollars to Cambodia to help the kingdom reduce its high maternal mortality rate and improve reproductive and child health.

The Cambodian Health Ministry says that despite an increase in its budget, maternal mortality still remains the highest in the region.

The donation will go to the United Nations Population Fund, which says it will use the money to improve decentralised health service delivery services, and to implement a comprehensive assessment of neonatal care for 2008 -2009.

The UNFPA says just 44 percent of Cambodian mothers deliver their children with the help of a trained health professional.

Midwives are in short supply and distance and lack of money also mean many women go without pregnancy and childbirth services.
