How can you make a difference?

Over the past decade, overall child mortality and maternal mortality have improved in Cambodia, with substantial reductions in under-5 mortality (35 to 16 deaths per 1,000 live births), infant mortality (28 to 12 deaths per 1,000 live births) and neonatal mortality (18 to 8 deaths per 1,000 live births).1 However, progress on maternal mortality has been slower from 170 per 100,000 live births in 2014 to 154 per 100,000 live births in 2021-22 (Cambodia Demographic Health Survey/CDHS), and the proportion of newborn deaths among child under 5 deaths remains relatively high. While the level of chronic undernutrition (stunting) has declined from 34% in 2014 to 22% in 2021/22, wasting remains stagnant at around 10% over the past decade, and is still among the highest in the Asian region, with a concerning declining trend of breastfeeding practices.

This consultancy assignment is to conduct a deep dive secondary analysis on the main drivers and determinants of maternal and child mortality (including infant and neonatal mortality), as well as determinants analysis of malnutrition, particularly in young children, adolescent girls, and pregnant women. In addition, UNICEF aims to better understand the factors contributing to the successful decline in child, infant and newborn mortality and stunting over the past years, while also understanding why slower progress has been made for maternal mortality and child wasting. The assessment will be implemented in key phases including a) literature review, b) quantitative analysis of the CDHS and complementary surveys, c) qualitative analysis through key informant interviews, d) reporting writing. Findings will be used to inform advocacy priorities and policy development in improving maternal, newborn and child survival and addressing all forms of malnutrition across the life cycle...
