a. New law on Regulation of health practitioners: after the Roka HIV outbreak coupled with the mounting pressure for the ASEAN integration by the end of 2015, MoH and the five health profession Councils drafted a law on the Regulation of health practitioners that includes medical doctors, dentists, midwives, nurses and pharmacists. This law is designed to strengthen the system of health profession regulation and thereby ensure the safety of patients and the quality of health professionals in the public and private health care systems in Cambodia.
b. Law on Control of Alcohol: the law was developed to control the sale and consumption of alcohol by establishing a drinking age and limiting alcohol accessibility and alcohol advertisements.
