Japanese start free medic care

A Japanese medical team has announced the start of a three-year project to provide

free health care to Cambodians, launched in memory of a U.N. Volunteer from Japan,

killed in April.

Atsuhito Nakata, 25, was fatally shot by an unknown assailant on Apr. 8 while helping

to organize the elections.

One doctor, two nurses, two pharmacists and an interpreter will make up the Atsuhito

Nakata Memorial Japan Volunteer Medical Team.

Cambodia has only one doctor for every 27,000 people, compared to Japan's one doctor

for every 609 people.

The volunteers are to be replaced every three months. The first group will work in

Phnom Penh and others will gradually spread out to the provinces. - AP
