In Cambodia, there has been considerable investment in improving the well-being of factory workers. Understanding the key stakeholders and their roles in improving worker health is essential for policy change and ensuring that interventions achieve sustainable, long-term impact in and around the workplace. This policy brief presents selected findings from a stakeholder and situational analysis undertaken by the Cambodia Worker Health Coalition (WorkerHealth) to understand the stakeholder landscape and policy environment for women’s health in the garment industry in Cambodia, with the objective of identifying leading stakeholders and their relationships, as well as strategies and opportunities for collaboration. Collaboration and collective action on worker health will require key organizations to work together, leverage relationships, and influence other stakeholders to take part. The analysis identified several strategies to foster collaboration; these recommendations are a starting point for addressing the challenges of working in a crowded policy landscape and an industry under much pressure.
