IDPoor is the mechanism, with which the Cambodian state collects data on poor households. It is used to channel social benefit packages, like free health services for the poor supported by Germany, directly towards those in need. The development of this system has been supported throughout the last decade jointly by Germany and Australia, implemented by GIZ. IDPoor has recently been included as best practice case into the German Health Practice Collection. It hereby shall inspire politicians and development practitioners of other countries.
