Bad medicine

To the Editor,

I would like to inform you that in the purpose of identifying the contrary

between the New Life Foundation and the other NGOs ("NGO gives local clinic old

medicine", Phnom Penh Post March 23), I raised the example of the two NGOs

Pharmacien Sans Frontiers and Renaissance Du Cambodge which also had almost

expired medicine, but that were well responsible for that medicine. They had

pharmacists to control those medicines and especially the medicines were given

to poor people without cost as the New Life Foundation did.

- Yim Yann, Chief of the Municipal Health Service Pharmacy Office
