Earlier this year RESULTS UK led a Parliamentary Delegation to Cambodia which was attended by Mark Pawsey MP, Baroness Alison Suttie, Michael Connarty MP, Nic Dakin MP and RESULTS UK board member Reg Davis. The delegation saw first hand the progress Cambodia has made in health and education and the struggles it continues to face (particularly with under-five child mortality and TB). This report highlights the key findings of the delegation, along with recommendations for both the UK and Cambodian governments.
The story of TB is told in numbers. The deadliest pandemic in human history, TB continues to kill 1.3 million people a year. More than 2 billion people carry the TB bacteria through latent TB infection.

This report discusses the drivers of progress in tackling multiple forms of malnutrition in these three countries: Vietnam, Uganda, and Kenya. It also identifies some of the challenges which pose as barriers to sustaining progress.

In November 2013 Mark Williams MP and Cathy Jamieson MP visited nutrition and education programmes in Tanzania, accompanied by staff from RESULTS UK. The aim of the delegation was to assess how Tanzania is addressing major development challenges related to early childhood development including undernutrition and its impact on children’ s ability to learn.
This report, the third in a series on nutrition from RESULTS, focuses on the nutrition situation in Cambodia - a country with rapid economic growth but stagnant progress on reducing national levels of undernutrition. The report looks at the nutrition situation in Cambodia; considers the reasons that economic growth doesn't necessarily coincide with a reduction in undernutrition; then sets out some possible next steps and recommendations for various stakeholders engaged in public health work in Cambodia.
RESULTS' Annual Review provides an overview of our impact on global issues that create or sustain extreme poverty, including tuberculosis, preventable disease, malnutrition, and a lack of access to education and microfinance. The progress we achieve on these issues through advocacy and campaigning contributes towards realising our vision of a world without extreme poverty.
