Cambodia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in Southeast Asia. The number of Cambodian women dying during pregnancy or childbirth has dropped in recent years. Yet more than 1,000 young mothers and pregnant women still die each year. That number is down almost 50 percent from the rate 15 years ago. However, it still is short of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The UN Children’s Fund says many Cambodian mothers die during childbirth because they lack medical care, often during emergencies. In a report, the agency said that “even when mothers can access healthcare, overall quality of care is deficient.” Ke Sovannaroth is head of the Cambodian National Assembly’s committee on health and women’s affairs. She says the government needs to do more to help women. Cambodia has increased the number of skilled medical workers assisting in childbirth. Tung Raththavy is with the Ministry of Health. She notes that the country also has doubled the number of health centers over the past 10 years. She says Cambodian officials have announced plans to expand health care in the future. She says the country needs skilled health care workers. She says the government has been working to increase resources, especially skilled birth attendants or midwives. Ke Sovannaroth says she has received reports that women died from childbirth because their doctor failed to help. She says Cambodians do not hear about the government punishing doctors who have done wrong.
