USAID has awarded Cambodia as a Champion in the Global Fight Against Tuberculosis.
 
In a ceremony in Washington Tuesday, Cambodian Ambassador Hem Heng accepted the award, calling it a “symbol of recognition of outstanding work.”
 
The award would also give “further encouragement to the Ministry of Health to combat tuberculosis in the country,” he said. Cambodia is working toward zero tuberculosis, with the help of USAID and the Global Fund, he added.
 
Ariel Pablos-Mendez, Assistant Administrator for Global Health at USAID, said cooperation was the key to Cambodia’s falling tuberculosis rates.

18 August 2014
Hundreds of housing rights protesters and evictees clashed with security forces outside Phnom Penh on Monday, leaving at least nine people with minor injuries. The clash was one of the first since major violence over Freedom Park in the capital in July. Protesters gathered outside the National Assembly Monday morning, hoping to deliver petitions of grievances, but when no one came out to accept the petitions, they decided to march on the suburban home of Prime Minister Hun Sen, in Kratie province, just outside the capital. There, they clashed with security personnel. VOA's Khmer Suy Heimkhemra reports from Phnom Penh.
