Deputy PM to get Int'l health award

One of Cambodia’s foremost female politicians will be recognised for her work as part of World No Tobacco Day next week, the World Health Organisation said Thursday. Deputy Prime Minister Men Sam An is slated to be among five people in the region to be given the World No Tobacco Day 2010 award, which will be presented May 31 at the Ministry of Health. This year, the WHO is hoping to put a spotlight on what it claims are tobacco companies’ attempts to target women and girls in an effort to “induce them to start smoking”.
