Medinews

MEDiNEWS is the primary mechanism for information exchange for MEDiCAM within Cambodia. MEDiNEWS is published monthly and contains articles dealing with the current issues in the Cambodian health system and facing the country’s health sector. The magazine’s target audience includes health professionals, development partners, policy makers and health managers throughout the country; it is not designed for the general population.

The ‘focus on’ section covers the current hot topics for heath sector development. Also included are donor and agency news, regional events, health issues and government events. We publish the minutes of the Technical Working Group for Health and also include all the latest health documents released in Cambodia. We continue to encourage members and partners to submit articles for the magazine and have included a variety of partner and member pieces in 2007.
