Evaluation Survey: CARE's Jvit Thmey Project Providing Primary Health Care


Evaluation Study: CARE's Jvit Thmey Project

A study by Sofia Sprechmann for CARE Cambodia, funded by USAID, published in 1999.

Since July 1995 and with funding from USAID, CARE's Jivit Thmey Project has supported the Cambodian government to provide primary health care services at health centers in three provinces: Pursat (Bakan district), Kampong Chhnang (Boribo and Rolea Phiear districts) and Banteay Meanchey (Preah Net Preah, O'Chrouv and Phnom Srok districts). A comprehensive baseline survey was conducted at the onset of the project. The survey gathered information on contraceptive knowledge and use, health seeking behavior during pregnancy and delivery, knowledge about HIV/AIDS, immunization of children under five, and health seeking behavior for diarrhea and ARI of children. The Jivit Thmey final evaluation survey was conducted between November 1998 and January 1999. The main objective of this evaluation survey was to assess if the project had achieved the expected impact and effects set for July 1998 (i.e. three years after the project was initiated).
