PHNOM PENH, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia's Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY) on Thursday released two important publications to guide the ongoing national efforts to reform its child care system.

Supported by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the publications aimed at reducing the number of residential care institutions and increasing family-based care services for vulnerable children, said a joint press release.

The first publication is the Capacity Development Plan for family support, foster care and adoption, the release said, adding that the plan presents key actions required by the MoSVY, other government institutions and partners to improve care services for children without parental care, to ensure that they can still live in a family setting that promotes their full development.

"MoSVY has already started implementing some of the recommendations of this plan. As a priority, MoSVY will establish a comprehensive database of all children in care to ensure that all children benefit from the best care option for them," said Minister of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation Vong Sauth.

"We are also developing procedures and training tools for professionals on kinship care, foster care and adoption," he said. "Stronger safeguards and standards will be introduced." ... 497284.htm
