Blood test centres proliferated in '09

The number of blood test centres in Cambodia increased from 212 in 2008 to 233 in 2009, according to the annual report of the Ministry of Health. At the launch of the report on Monday, Minister of Health Mam Bunheng said that the rising number of centres reflected the increase in people who needed blood tests for a variety of ailments. “We think that it is easier to protect the spread of HIV/AIDS if we clearly know the number of affected people and we are able to advise and offer them antiretroviral drugs,” he added. The minister also said that 353,864 people underwent blood tests for HIV/AIDS in 2009. A total of 37,315 have tested positive for the disease.
