In Cambodia, where maternal and infantile mortality rates are high, E&D acts in order to facilitate access to maternal care for women belonging to rural populations.
The "Sexual and Reproductive Health" program works to improve the access and quality of sexual and reproductive health services in rural areas according to two complementary axis:
A curative way so as to strengthen the capacities of health centres (trainings and equipment)
A preventative way so as to raise awareness and mobilise the village communities, to follow pregnant women, in order to reduce the maternal and infantile mortality rates and to offer medical and psychological support to women victims of sexual violence.
To be understood by all people, sensitive issues touching on inequalities and domestic violence are presented to the inhabitants through plays and peer listeners have been trained in the villages to be mediators for the most disadvantaged families.
Following the same logic of proximity, Doulas have been trained to support, listen and provide counselling to women during their pregnancy.
