The Kingdom of Cambodia

After many years of Civil War, Cambodia is now in a period of peace and stability. As Phnom Penh, its capital, develops rapidly, the gap between the life of urban areas and that of rural areas is widening, and in rural areas, villagers continue to face harsh living conditions. In particular, the health of mothers and children, measured by the maternal and infant mortality rates, continue to be inferior to many neighboring ASEAN countries. Additionally, as you can see in the table below, nutrition has improved slowly in comparison to other indicators.
