MSI Cambodia mHealth Strategy to Strengthen Family Planning Services for Garment Workers

Marie Stopes International Cambodia (MSIC) is developing a mobile health (mHealth) strategy for a project to improve access to high quality health care services among garment factory workers (GFWs). The project will collaborate with management from 60 garment factories (GF) to improve health outcomes and increase awareness among 100,000 GFWs. The project’s focus is on increased access to reproductive health services through improved infirmary services, linkages to a private provider network, and access to health financing services. The project will also create a quality assured health provider network with approximately 160 members around GFs.

The Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) project developed recommendations for investing in priority mobile applications including a costed menu of options to further MSIC’s objectives. Phone ownership among GFWs in Cambodia is estimated at 80 percent, ranging from basic phones used only for calling to a growing use of smartphones among the more literate. Text messaging is limited due to lack of Khmer language-enabled phones.
