Since the introduction of the International Health Regulations in 2005, the RGC has worked closely with the World Health Organization, the USG and other development partners to develop the ability to manage major health security events and incidents. The Republic of Korea and United States are proud to continue their support for Cambodia’s efforts to prevent, detect and respond effectively to pandemic threats and health security issues.
