Recommendation: Each MOH conducts regional technical forum at least once a year

4 joint press release have been shared through CDC website (Ebola, MERS-CoV, and Rabies) including sex disaggregation.

Recommendation: Number of MOH exchange information on disease outbreaks as per International Health Regulations (IHR), including gender-disaggregated data

Delayed. 10 project provinces are applying 8 criteria of APSED. Their qualities and completeness are still limited and need to improve

Recommendation: National assessment was performed in 2012. Mission suggested to collect the data disaggregated by project province.

4 border provinces were selected (Takeo, Stung Treng, Rattanakiri and Svay Rieng) for piloting the information exchange at local level in Q4, 2014.

All training guideline and material including gender and IP focus, approved by MoH. Training report templates were designed with sex disaggregated and IP.

Recommendation: PCU need to list all the training materials used under project financing.
