Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng has renewed his calls for doctors to maintain their ethical and professional code of conduct when caring for patients, amid the public’s growing confidence in public health services.

Bun Heng, along with Phnom Penh deputy governor Imran Hassan, presided over the June 1 awards ceremony for the leadership and staff of the Phnom Penh Municipal administration’s medical team, said a health ministry press release.

He noted that they had seized counterfeit and illegally imported medication, while also quashing illegal health services.

“The public’s trust in public health services is increasing as more and more people access it. Consultations and treatments have also gained momentum,” he said.
