Contraception milestones

PSI (Population Services International) and SQHN (Sun Quality Health Network) are celebrating progress in providing Cambodian women with reproductive services, counselling and products.

Cambodian director general for Health, H.E. Professor Eng Huot was the key speaker at the celebration on January 19. SQHN is a network of private health providers established in 2002 to distribute PSI birth spacing (i.e. contraception), counselling services and products at affordable prices for low income Cambodians. The network has achieved a four-fold expansion in clinic numbers in the last four months.

The SQHN is supported by both the ministry of health and USAID. Despite progress, a pressing need for reproductive services remains. Although access to modern birth spacing has doubled since 1995, still only 20 percent of women have access to reproductive health services and products.
