By on 6 December 2017

Hou Kroeun is the Deputy Country Director at Helen Keller International in Cambodia. He is also the coordinator of the SUN Civil Society Alliance in Cambodia.

In this interview, he highlights the crucial role that civil society plays in the SUN Movement. He also discusses how the CSA in Cambodia was formed, and reflects on some of the challenges faced and how these have been overcome. Kroeun discusses the impact that the CSA has had by providing advisory services, technical assistance and guidance to the government on their Mid-Term review of food security and nutrition.

He also discusses how the civil society network has provided training for the media to sensitise them on nutrition issues, particularly breastfeeding, in order to increase coverage of these issues in the media.
