Data and Evidence Generation
Cambodia has a wealth of socio-economic data and information recorded in commune databases, administrative data and national household surveys. However, there is a dearth of disaggregated data to capture the situation for different genders and age groups. Utilization of data to inform planning and budgeting is also limited.
In some cases, especially in rural areas, data quality also remains a concern. Limited knowledge or capacity of local administrators makes it difficult to systematically collect and analyse information.
UNICEF works to increase the capacity of government and non-government institutions to generate and use quality data and evidence, and monitor the situation of women and children to inform policy making, planning and budgeting at national and sub-national levels.
What we do
National targets by 2015
• At least 15 per cent of individuals on antiretroviral therapy through the national programme are children and the proportion of people receiving antiretroviral therapy matches the gender and age group distribution of the epidemic in Cambodia.
