Kingdom launches NCD alliance

National and international health experts on Thursday launched Cambodia’s first non-communicable diseases (NCDs) alliance network, expressing concerns over treatment with 64 per cent of deaths in the Kingdom caused by such afflictions.

At the network’s launch in Phnom Penh, attended by almost 100 officials from the Ministry of Health and international health organisations, and members of the community, a 2018 World Health Organisation (WHO) report was used to highlight that 64 per cent of deaths in Cambodia were due to NCDs.
