Cambodia has made great strides in health care. Maternal and child mortality have been vastly reduced and more healthcare facilities are now available throughout the country. The picture was very different 20 years ago when gaining access to affordable health services were huge obstacles for the poorest and most remote villages. Here we follow the story of Yav Neang, a mother from a remote Cambodian village, who needed help for her sick 8-month old baby. Through the Health Equity Fund, she and her baby are among the 3 million Cambodians who now have access to better and affordable health care, ensuring that they get quality care when they’re sick.
