Partnering to Save Lives

Sexual, Reproductive and Maternal Health Garment Factory Worker Perceptions
Terms of Reference

1. Background:
Under the auspices of Australian Aid’s Australian Mekong NGO Engagement Platform (AMNEP) an NGO partnership was formed between Save the Children, CARE and Marie Stopes International Cambodia to contribute to addressing Cambodia’s most urgent needs in reproductive, maternal and neonatal health.  The Partnering to Save Lives (PSL) program, as represented by the three implementing NGOs, the Cambodian Ministry of Health (MoH) and Australian Aid, has been designed to support meeting the Fast Track Initiative Road Map for Reducing Maternal and Newborn Mortality (FTIRMN) targets for 2015, including Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care, Skilled Birth Attendance, Family Planning, Safe Abortion, Behaviour Change Communication (BCC), and Reducing Financial Barriers. The PSL program will support efforts in meeting targets for the FTIRMN for three years with a possible two year extension to support meeting post-Millennium Development Goal targets.

2.  Program goal and outcomes:
The overall goal of PSL is to save the lives of women and neonates in Cambodia through improved quality, access and utilisation of reproductive, maternal and neonatal health services through a partnership approach.

At the conclusion of the first three years of PSL, there are expected to be six primary outcomes:

  •  Improved quality reproductive, maternal and neonatal health (RMNH) services for target populations
  • Greater equity of access to appropriate RMNH services for target populations 
  • More responsive RMNH services meet the needs of target populations 
  • Improved RMNH behaviours amongst target populations 
  • Evidence-based innovation and learning that contributes to improved policy and practices 
  • A partnership model that demonstrates impact and value for money to achieve RMNH outcomes



PSL’s primary geographic focus is the four North-eastern Provinces of Cambodia – Ratanakiri, Mondulkiri, Stung Treung and Kratie along with the garment factories in Phnom Penh municipality and Kandal Province.  In addition to this, due to the scope of MSIC, national support is provided specifically to safe abortion and long term and permanent family planning services based on priorities indicated by the national reproductive health program.
