April 2 - 8, 2017 marks World Health Worker Week. We're honoring health workers in this blog series. Today's theme is "Partnerships."
In Cambodia, each health profession is regulated by their respective independent Council—the Medical Council of Cambodia, the Dental Council of Cambodia, the Cambodian Midwives Council, the Cambodian Council of Nurses, and the Pharmacy Council of Cambodia. Since 2000, these councils have played an important quality and safety role through registration of qualified health professionals, making sure that they maintain registration, establish the codes and standards of professional practice and investigate complaints about matters relating to a health professional’s health, performance or professional conduct.
