Remarks at the Closing of the 36th Health Conference

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, and Distinguished local and International Guests
All Participants!

Today, I am delighted to attend the closing of this important 36th Health Conference held for the last two days. Indeed, this conference has provided all of us a chance to review the achievements, opportunities and challenges to work together on formulating and implementing the new action plan in consistency with the Cambodian Millennium Development Goals (CMDGs) in the health sector, setting priority areas to be implemented in 2015 and setting direction for the coming years to achieve success and ensure the fruitful outcome and prosperity for our society.


Selected Impromptu Comments at the Closing Session of the 36th Annual Review Meeting of the Ministry of Health

In addition to the prepared text, Samdech Techo Hun Sen made some comments that are selected and translated here followed:

Private Physicians

We should do more work to strengthen healthcare at the local level, where the state and private physicians are providing services altogether. The case of the village of Rokar is concerned, I think it is a big problem as far as administering and management of physicians that are spread throughout the county is concerned. In the beginning I could not pull myself to believe what happened. How come HIV/AIDS could spread to hundreds of people? After we have conducted thorough research, I come to a conclusion that it is a big issue.

Private Health Investment Opportunity

I am so glad today to have come and joined with all of you in putting this Royal Phnom Penh Hospital, investment made by the Bangkok Dusit Medical Service PCL, into official use.

On behalf of the Royal Government of Cambodia, allow me to express my profound thanks for investment in the health sector. The Royal Government has done everything possible to allow private investment not only in economy but also in health and education. Thanks to this effort and policy, it is now a common scene to everyone that Cambodia has got various hospitals, private clinic, university and schools.
