History

Cambodia is situated in South-East Asia and is comprised of lowlands and mountainous terrain.3 Cambodia gained independence from France in 1953. In 1975, five years after a military coup, the Khmer Rouge came to power and applied a radical and genocidal regime. The Khmer Rouge was defeated in 1979, after causing the deaths of almost two million civilians, including significant numbers of health care staff.4 Following the signing of the Paris Peace Accords in 1991, which included a Declaration on the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of Cambodia,5 the Ministry of Health embarked on health sector reform through a Strengthening Health Systems Project with the assistance of development partners.6 A free election was held in May 1993 and the country became the Kingdom of Cambodia, a constitutional monarchy, marking its progress towards democracy.7 This was the beginning of a long process toward growth and development that continues today.

At the centre of Cambodia’s development has been a period of sustained peace and stable government, coupled with policies aimed at rebuilding essential infrastructure and institutions. Cambodia’s economy has improved dramatically, with gross domestic product per capita increasing from $608 in 1993 to $2454 in 2012 (purchasing power parity (PPP, Int$)) (see Table 1: Key country indicators). Economic growth is associated with a decline in the national poverty rate from 53% in 2004 to 21% in 2011, 8 and with improved access to education, water and sanitation. A large proportion of Cambodia’s population of 15 million continues to live in communes (social units) in rural areas (80%); and 90% of the country’s poor are rural dwellers. Reaching these populations remains a high priority.
