These Standards are a progressive step towards ensuring that the best possible care is provided to Cambodia's children, particularly to those from the most vulnerable families. The Standards provide vital guidance to organisations and programmes caring for orphans and vulnerable children in six essential areas: Food and Nutrition; Health; Education; Social, Emotional and Psychological; Economic Strengthening and Other (which address shelter, birth registration and succession planning).

Fifty-one Standards have been developed to clearly describe the care, support and protection that should be provided to vulnerable children and their families. These Standards and Guidelines complement the existing Minimum Standards on Alternative Care for Children as well.
