Cambodge Sant?2004

A week-long international health science congress opened in Phnom Penh on November

18, with doctors from Cambodia and around the world presenting papers on the latest

medical developments.

An annual event, this year's 'Cambodge Santé 2004' is the largest so far in

Cambodia, with 300 papers and workshops planned for the estimated 1,500 who are expected

to attend over six days.

Highlights will include the formation of a Diabetes Society to discuss setting up

a national diabetes center next year and the inauguration of a new state-of-the-art

mammograph machine at the Preah Keat Mealea Hospital that will scan for breast cancer.

Maternal health and HIV/AIDs are the main themes, but doctors will share information

on a wide range of health issues and techniques. While papers are in English or French,

the sessions will have Khmer translation.
