Active Projects



Cambodia’s economic growth in recent years has strengthened the country’s potential to achieve the highest level of health and well-being for its population. URC’s work in Cambodia began with the Quality Assurance Project in 1990, when our non-profit affiliate, the Center for Human Services provided technical assistance and conducted operations research on health care quality improvement. Other past URC projects in the country have focused on maternal, newborn, and child health, reproductive health and family planning, HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and food and nutrition. In recent years, URC’s comprehensive, sustainable health systems strengthening approach has been applied to the Quality Health Services project to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition services. Our work with the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) project aims to improve health care, strengthen health systems, and advance the frontier of improvement science. The breadth of URC’s continued work in Cambodia relies on our ability to provide support for quality improvement, health systems strengthening, research and evaluation, health communication and behavior change.
