Australia Pledges to Continue Health Collaboration with Cambodia

Australia has pledged to continue supporting the Ministry of Health's priorities and boost bilateral health collaboration with Cambodia.

The pledge was made by H.E. Justin Whyatt, Ambassador of Australia to Cambodia, in a meeting with H.E. Chheang Ra, Minister of Health, here in Phnom Penh on Sept. 7.

H.E. Chheang Ra recalled H.E. Justin Whyatt of the Australian government's contribution to building a resilient and strong health system in Cambodia through financing under technical assistance and grant-aid frameworks.

The minister spoke highly of Australia's continued support for the ministry's efforts to promote Cambodian people's welfare and achieve global health coverage in line with the government's pentagonal strategy.

He requested that Australia examine the possibility of strengthening the capacity of Cambodian doctors, dentists, pharmacists, midwives, and nurses in order to further improve health care standards in Cambodia.

Both sides also reviewed and discussed the action plan of the Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) programme phase II (2023-2028), focusing on capacity building and effective services for people with disabilities and vulnerable women.
