Enhancing Quality of Healthcare Activity in Cambodia

The overall goal of the Enhancing Quality of Healthcare Activity (EQHA) project in Cambodia is to improve the quality of public and private health services in national and sub-national health systems by August 2023. The project, funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), is being implemented by Family Health International (FHI360) in collaboration with I-TECH and other partner organizations. I-TECH’s scope of work focuses on improvements to 1) the national health policy regulatory framework and 2) national pre-service health education and training institutions.

In September 2018, I-TECH began strengthening the regulatory framework by creating an accreditation roadmap for public and private health facilities, developing a regulatory information platform, strengthening continuing professional development, and strengthening health professional councils.

To strengthen pre-service education, I-TECH’s work includes a gap analysis, improving HR data systems related to pre- and in-service education, and strengthening clinical teaching methods as well as systems for updating pre-service and in-service offerings.
