Viet Nam News HÀ NỘI — Srey Phirum Khun, 45, used to spend 8 hours travelling from Cambodia’s Kampong Speu Province to HCM City in Việt Nam for health checkups and treatment. Today, she no longer faces the grueling journey thanks to the inauguration of the Chợ Rẫy Phnom Penh Hospital in January 2014.
“I no longer have to travel abroad for treatment. It helps save my money and time,” she said with a smile.
Khun was just one of many who have benefited from the joint cooperation between Việt Nam and Cambodia in the medical sector.
