Enhancing health programme efficiency: a Cambodian case study. (1/469)

In 1995, the Cambodian Urban Health Care Association (CUHCA) was set up as facilitator between private health care providers and patients, guaranteeing good quality health care and fair pricing to patients and providing training and logistic support to providers. Providers were engaged on a fee-for-service basis and competition encouraged. CUHCA's objectives followed the same line of thought as the 1993 World Development Report, aiming at influencing the unregulated private health care market through competition mechanisms. But soon after the start of the project the basic problem was recognized to be not the absence of effective government regulation but rather that consumers lack the requisite knowledge to make good choices in the market for health services. CUHCA had not adequately addressed the demand for health services. The original supply-side strategy of improving health services by increasing competition was a failure. In order to improve CUHCA's health programme efficiency the association's objectives were subsequently redefined and its functioning reorganized. CUHCA now tries to educate consumers and provides good quality services so that consumers will be able to act on the basis of their newly acquired knowledge. CUHCA's health centres serve as model clinics for first-line health care. Community educators organize information, education and communication (IEC) activities. Staff help school teachers to improve formal health education in schools and CUHCA assists local leaders in sanitation development. Only full-time personnel are employed, encouraging team spirit and communication with the target population. Salaries are based on team performance. The CUHCA programme demonstrates that, depending on the market situation, health programme models need to address both the supply and the demand for services in order to be efficient. Where consumers lack essential knowledge to make appropriate choices in the health service market, interventions should focus on health education and social marketing and provide models of quality care catering to informed consumer choice.  (+info)

Cervical cancer screening among Cambodian-American women. (3/469)

Southeast Asian women have higher invasive cervical cancer incidence rates and lower Pap testing frequencies than most other racial/ethnic groups in the United States. However, there is little information about the cervical cancer screening behavior of Cambodian-American women. Cambodian residents of Seattle were surveyed in person during late 1997 and early 1998. The PRECEDE model was used to guide the development of items that assessed predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors associated with cervical cancer screening participation. The estimated overall survey response was 72%. Four hundred thirteen women completed our questionnaire. Approximately one-quarter (24%) of the respondents had never had a Pap test, and over one-half (53%) had not been screened recently. The following variables were positively associated with a history of at least one Pap smear: younger age, greater number of years since immigration, belief about Pap testing for postmenopausal women, prenatal care in the United States, and physician recommendation. Women who believed in karma were less likely to have ever been screened for cervical cancer than those who did not. Six variables independently predicted recent screening: age; beliefs about regular checkups, cervical cancer screening for sexually inactive women, and the prolongation of life; having a female doctor; and a previous physician recommendation for Pap testing. The study findings indicate that culturally specific approaches might be effective in modifying the cervical cancer screening behavior of immigrant women. Programs targeting Cambodian-Americans are likely to be more effective if they are multifaceted and simultaneously address predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling factors.  (+info)

Sexual behaviour of commercial sex workers and their clients in Cambodia. Japan-Cambodia Collaborating Research Group. (4/469)

OBJECTIVE: This study surveyed the sexual behaviour of commercial sex workers and their clients in an attempt to identify factors of transmission of STDs (including HIV/AIDS) and to control their epidemics in Cambodia and South-East Asia. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Trained questioners asked items of the questionnaires to each objective subject in December 1996. Data were analysed to show the descriptive status by risk group of each person. PARTICIPANTS: 200 direct commercial sex workers, 220 indirect commercial sex workers, and 211 clients in Phnom Penh. RESULTS: Prostitution was widely accepted by both young males and females, and this was an easy way for young girls to obtain money. Although commercial sex workers and clients were knowledgeable about prevention methods against STDs, they seldom used condoms. Some commercial sex workers had been infected with STDs many times, and many of them incompletely treated the diseases by themselves. Social support from governmental and non-governmental organisation was poor. CONCLUSIONS: It is very important to support both commercial sex workers in practicing preventive methods against STDs and also visiting physicians when they notice symptoms of STDs. It is strongly recommended that not only governmental but also non-governmental organisations should be more active in this area.  (+info)

Circumstances around weapon injury in Cambodia after departure of a peacekeeping force: prospective cohort study. (5/469)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the circumstances surrounding weapon injury and combatant status of those injured by weapons. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Northwestern Cambodia after departure of United Nations peacekeeping force. SUBJECTS: 863 people admitted to hospital for weapon injuries over 12 months. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Annual incidence of weapon injury by time period; proportions of injuries inflicted as a result of interfactional combat (combat injuries) and outside such combat (non-combat injuries) by combatant status and weapon type. RESULTS: The annual incidence of weapon injuries was higher than the rate observed before the peacekeeping operation. 30% of weapon injuries occurred in contexts other than interfactional combat. Most commonly these were firearm injuries inflicted intentionally on civilians. Civilians accounted for 71% of those with non-combat injuries, 42% of those with combat related injuries, and 51% of those with weapon injuries of either type. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of weapon injuries remained high when the disarmament component of a peacekeeping operation achieved only limited success. Furthermore, injuries occurring outside the context of interfactional combat accounted for a substantial proportion of all weapon injuries, were experienced disproportionately by civilians, and were most likely to entail the intentional use of a firearm against a civilian.  (+info)

Foci of Schistosomiasis mekongi, Northern Cambodia: II. Distribution of infection and morbidity. (6/469)

In the province of Kracheh, in Northern Cambodia, a baseline epidemiological survey on Schistosoma mekongi was conducted along the Mekong River between December 1994 and April 1995. The results of household surveys of highly affected villages of the East and the West bank of the river and of school surveys in 20 primary schools are presented. In household surveys 1396 people were examined. An overall prevalence of infection of 49.3% was detected by a single stool examination with the Kato-Katz technique. The overall intensity of infection was 118.2 eggs per gram of stool (epg). There was no difference between the population of the east and west shore of the Mekong for prevalence (P = 0.3) or intensity (P = 0.9) of infection. Severe morbidity was very frequent. Hepatomegaly of the left lobe was detected in 48.7% of the population. Splenomegaly was seen in 26.8% of the study participants. Visible diverted circulation was found in 7.2% of the population, and ascites in 0.1%. Significantly more hepatomegaly (P = 0.001), splenomegaly (P = 0. 001) and patients with diverted circulation (P = 0.001) were present on the west bank of the Mekong. The age group of 10-14 years was most affected. The prevalence of infection in this group was 71.8% and 71.9% in the population of the West and East of the Mekong, respectively. The intensity of infection was 172.4 and 194.2 epg on the West and the East bank, respectively. In the peak age group hepatomegaly reached a prevalence of 88.1% on the west and 82.8% on the east bank. In the 20 schools 2391 children aged 6-16 years were examined. The overall prevalence of infection was 40.0%, ranging from 7.7% to 72.9% per school. The overalls mean intensity of infection was 110.1 epg (range by school: 26.7-187.5 epg). Both prevalence (P = 0.001) and intensity of infection (P = 0.001) were significantly higher in schools on the east side of the Mekong. Hepatomegaly (55.2%), splenomegaly (23.6%), diverted circulation (4. 1%), ascites (0.5%), reported blood (26.7%) and mucus (24.3%) were very frequent. Hepatomegaly (P = 0.001), splenomegaly (P = 0.001), diverted circulation (P = 0.001) and blood in stool (P = 0.001) were significantly more frequent in schools of the east side of the Mekong. Boys suffered more frequently from splenomegaly (P = 0.05), ascites (P = 0.05) and bloody stools (P = 0.004) than girls. No difference in sex was found for the prevalence and intensity of infection and prevalence of hepatomegaly. On the school level prevalence and intensity of infection were highly associated (r = 0. 93, P = 0.0001). The intensity of infection was significantly associated only with the prevalence of hepatomegaly (r = 0.44, P = 0. 05) and blood in stool (r = 0.40, P = 0.02). This comprehensive epidemiological study documents for the first time the public health importance of schistosomiasis mekongi in the Province of Kracheh, Northern Cambodia and points at key epidemiological features of this schistosome species, in particular the high level of morbidity associated with infection.  (+info)

Rehabilitating health services in Cambodia: the challenge of coordination in chronic political emergencies. (7/469)

The end of the Cold War brought with it opportunities to resolve a number of conflicts around the world, including those in Angola, Cambodia, El Salvador and Mozambique. International political efforts to negotiate peace in these countries were accompanied by significant aid programmes ostensibly designed to redress the worst effects of conflict and to contribute to the consolidation of peace. Such periods of political transition, and associated aid inflows, constitute an opportunity to improve health services in countries whose health indicators have been among the worst in the world and where access to basic health services is significantly diminished by war. This paper analyzes the particular constraints to effective coordination of health sector aid in situations of 'post'-conflict transition. These include: the uncertain legitimacy and competence of state structures; donor choice of implementing channels; and actions by national and international political actors which served to undermine coordination mechanisms in order to further their respective agendas. These obstacles hindered efforts by health professionals to establish an effective coordination regime, for example, through NGO mapping and the establishment of aid coordinating committees at national and provincial levels. These technical measures were unable to address the basic constitutional question of who had the authority to determine the distribution of scarce resources during a period of transition in political authority. The peculiar difficulties of establishing effective coordination mechanisms are important to address if the long-term effectiveness of rehabilitation aid is to be enhanced.  (+info)

Cross-sectional study on risk factors of HIV among female commercial sex workers in Cambodia. (8/469)

To describe epidemiological features on HIV prevalence among female commercial sex workers (CSWs), a cross-sectional study on sexual behaviour and serological prevalence was carried out in Cambodia. The CSWs were interviewed on their demographic characters and behaviour and their blood samples were taken for testing on sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, Chlamydia trachomatis, syphilis, and hepatitis B. Associations between risk factors and HIV seropositivity were analysed. High seroprevalence of HIV and Chlamydia trachomatis IgG antibody (CT-IgG-Ab) was shown among the CSWs (54 and 81.7%, respectively). Univariate logistic regression analyses showed an association between HIV seropositivity and age, duration of prostitution, the number of clients per day and CT-IgG-Ab. Especially, high-titre chlamydial seropositivity showed a strong significant association with HIV prevalence. In multiple logistic regression analyses, CT-IgG-Ab with higher titre was significantly independently related to HIV infection. These suggest that existence of Chlamydia trachomatis is highly related to HIV prevalence.  (+info)

Health officials in Phnom Penh are setting off alarm bells in the hopes that city residents will not get caught up in what experts on dengue fever predict will be a major epidemic in the capital in less than three months. The last of the major dengue epidemics, which are known to occur throughout the Southeast Asian region every two or three years, hit Cambodia in 1990. More than 7,241 cases were reported nationwide and more than 330 people died from the mosquito-born viral disease. About 4,000 cases and 159 fatalities were reported in Phnom Penh alone. We are very concerned about dengue fever, said Dr. Jean Paul Menu of the World Health Organization (WHO). Soon we will be entering the hot season and an epidemic will come. If we dont do enough between now and May it will be too late for some (prevention) activities.
The culture of the ethnic Khmer is fairly homogeneous throughout their geographic range. Regional dialects exist, but are mutually intelligible. The standard is based on the dialect spoken throughout the Central Plain,[29] a region encompassed by the northwest and central provinces. The varieties of Khmer spoken in this region are representative of the speech of the majority of the population. A unique and immediately recognizable dialect has developed in Phnom Penh that, due to the citys status as the national capital, has been modestly affected by recent French and Vietnamese influence. Other dialects are Northern Khmer dialect, called Khmer Surin by Cambodians, spoken by over a million Khmer native to Northeast Thailand and Khmer Krom spoken by the millions of Khmer native to the Mekong Delta regions of Vietnam adjacent to Cambodia and their descendants abroad. A little-studied dialect known as Western Khmer, or Cardamom Khmer, is spoken by a small, isolated population in the Cardamom ...

Standard Khmer, or Central Khmer, the language as taught in Cambodian schools and used by the media, is based on the dialect spoken throughout the Central Plain,[20] a region encompassed by the northwest and central provinces.. Northern Khmer (called Khmer Surin in Khmer) refers to the dialects spoken by many in several border provinces of present-day northeast Thailand. After the fall of the Khmer Empire in the early 15th century, the Dongrek Mountains served as a natural border leaving the Khmer north of the mountains under the sphere of influence of the Kingdom of Lan Xang. The conquests of Cambodia by Naresuan the Great for Ayutthaya furthered their political and economic isolation from Cambodia proper, leading to a dialect that developed relatively independently from the midpoint of the Middle Khmer period.[21] This has resulted in a distinct accent influenced by the surrounding tonal languages Lao and Thai, lexical differences, and phonemic differences in both vowels and distribution of ...

The mysterious illness that has killed dozens of Cambodian children may be a deadly strain of hand, foot and mouth disease, a common childhood illness, according to health officials
BACKGROUND: Anemia is highly prevalent in Cambodian women and children, but data on causes of anemia are scarce. We performed a national micronutrient survey in children and women that was linked to the Cambodian Demographic Health Survey 2014 (CDHS-2014) to assess the prevalence of micronutrient deficiency, hemoglobin disorders and intestinal parasite infection.. METHODS: One-sixth of households from the CDHS-2014 were selected for a follow-up visit for the micronutrient survey. Households were visited from two weeks to two months after the CDHS-2014 visit. Data on micronutrient status were available for 1512 subjects (792 children and 720 women).. RESULTS: Anemia was found in 43% of the women and 53% of the children. Hemoglobin disorders affected ,50% of the population, with Hemoglobin-E the most prevalent disorder. Deficiencies of iron (ferritin , 15 g/L), vitamin A (retinol-binding-protein (RBP) , 0.70 mol/L) or vitamin B12 (,150 pmol/L) were not prevalent in the women (,5% for all), whereas ...
A Promise Fulfilled.

If I am not mistaken, before todays inauguration, President Kainuma of Minebea Company met me twice - January and July 2011 to seek support for exclusiveness in certain issues so as to guarantee its investment in Cambodia.. I gave President Kainuma my support and promised him the Royal Government of Cambodia will take full responsibility to see through the operation of the Minebea Companys production and investment. I was then invited to preside over the grand opening of the Minebea (Cambodia) Co. Ltd. in Phnom Penhs special ...
A Cambodian Court of Appeal has upheld a 27-year jail term for a Nigerian drug convict, Mr Precious Chineme Nwoko.. Nwoko was sentenced to 27 years imprisonment in 2014 by a trial court in Cambodia after he was linked with several Australian women arrested for being his mules.. The intermediate appellate court also confirmed the prison terms slammed on a Frenchwoman, and another Australian.. The trio were all convicted for trying to smuggle heroin to Australia.. Judge Pol Sam Ouen said the sentences given by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court in May 2014 to then-19-year-old Frenchwoman Charlene Savarino, 41-year-old Ann Yoshe Taylor of Australia and 23-year-old Precious Nwoko of Nigeria were correct.. The lower court had sentenced Savarino to 25 years in prison, Taylor to 23 years and Nwoko to 27 years.. Savarino and Taylor were arrested in September 2013 at Phnom Penh International Airport after police found 2.2 kilograms (4.8 pounds) of heroin in Taylors luggage as they prepared to fly together ...

PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA - High on a Cambodian cliff, the Preah Vihear temple has weathered war and territorial disputes. Now its at the center of a political tug-of-war in neighboring Thailand.. As it has over the centuries, the ancient temple is fueling nationalist sentiment on both sides of the border, and opposition supporters in the Thai parliament are raising it as a reason for why the prime minister should step down.. Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej recently endorsed Cambodias bid to register the temple as a UNESCO World Heritage site - enraging opposition lawmakers who say he is yielding national sovereignty to Cambodia.. Never mind that the International Court of Justice awarded the temple and the land it stands on to Cambodia in 1962 - it remains an issue in both countries.. The Preah Vihear temple is part of a wounded history of Thailand and Cambodia, said Charnvit Kasetsiri, a historian at Bangkoks Thammasat University. It was used to stir up a nationalist movement during ...
From 1970 to 1975, after the collapse of the Sangkum Reas Niyum regime at the end of 1969, Cambodia was ruled by the Khmer Republic led by Lon Nol. Both the social and economic sectors in the country eventually collapsed and their collapse was irretrievable. Various ministries and institutions were the subject of controversy, and all sectors were affected by war. Because of the political instability and insecurity, many civil servants and employees had resigned or worked inattentively. At the same time, the potable water treatment process and business of PPWSA was also adversely affected due to the inability to implement planned projects and programs. Furthermore, the plan to convert PPWSA to an autonomous national enterprise was also postponed ...
Maternal and child undernutrition are a significant problem in the developing world, with serious consequences for human health and socio-economic development. In Cambodia, 55% of children, 43% of women of reproductive age, and 50% of pregnant women are anemic. Current prevention and control practices rely on supplementation with iron pills or large-scale food fortification, neither of which are affordable or feasible in rural Cambodia. In the study areas, 97% of women did not meet their daily iron requirements. The current research focuses on the design and evaluation of an innovative iron supplementation technique. A culturally acceptable, inexpensive and lightweight iron ingot was designed to resemble a fish species considered lucky in Khmer culture. The ingot, referred to as try sabay or happy fish, was designed to supply iron at a slow, steady rate. Iron leaching was observed in water and soup samples prepared with the iron fish when used concurrently with an acidifier. More than 75% of ...
Background: Cambodian Americans have high rates of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and livercancer. There is very limited information about the utility of community health worker (CHW) approaches tocancer education for Asian American men. We have previously reported our positive findings from a trial ofCHW education about HBV for Cambodian Americans who had never been tested for HBV. This report describessimilarities and differences between the outcomes of our CHW HBV educational intervention among CambodianAmerican men and women. Methods: The study group for this analysis included 87 individuals (39 men and 48women) who were randomized to the experimental (HBV education) arm of our trial, participated in the CHWeducational intervention, and provided follow-up data six months post-intervention. We examined HBV testingrates at follow-up, changes in HBV-related knowledge between baseline and follow-up, and barriers to HBVtesting (that were reported to CHWs) by gender. Results: At follow-up, 15%
English version below text). This September, the Khmer Health Board is hosting its first ever, health fair to address health disparities in the local Khmer community in the greater Seattle area. The health fair will incorporate free health screenings, wellness services, and resource/education promotion to engage understanding on how to support Khmer American health needs. The Khmer Health Boards mission is to advocate for health equity in their Khmer community by addressing the institutional and systemic barriers that impact the health, safety and well-being of the community.. The goal of the health fair is to improve the Khmer Seattle communities access to much-needed health screening, health education or other preventative services related to oral health, diabetes, immunizations, housing services, and counseling/mental services among others. Historically, Khmer American refugees have overall worse health outcomes than any other non-refugee Asian immigrant. Even decades after resettlement, ...

Existing ready-to-use supplementary and therapeutic foods (RUSFs and RUTFs) have had limited acceptance and effectiveness in Cambodia. This has hampered the treatment and prevention of child malnutrition. An innovative, locally produced, multiple micronutrient fortified lipid-based nutrient supplement (LNS) has been developed for use as an RUSF. Unlike most RUSFs, which contain milk, this product contains fish as the animal protein. Few RUSFs have been formulated using non-milk animal-source foods and they have not been widely tested. An acceptability trial that was conducted on this novel RUSF in June 2015 demonstrated that children will eat the RUSF and that caregivers will feed it to their children. The current trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the RUSF in preventing growth faltering and improving micronutrient status in Cambodian children. This trial is a six-month, prospective, cluster randomised, non-blinded controlled trial among infants in peri-urban Phnom Penh. The trial aims to

Brazen Bunch: Dengue Fevers version of Joni Mitchells Both Sides Now appeared on the City of Ghosts soundtrack. Holiday in Cambodia Dengue Fever forges on in face of language barriers and terrorist sweeps By Matt Reed DENGUE FEVERS oft-told creation story goes something like this: Musically inclined guy from Southern California backpacks through Southeast Asia for a few months. On his way to Angkor Wat, he hears a unique sound blaring from a tape player on the street the sound of smoothly crooned 1960s Cambodian pop, with hints of surf guitar and dreamy saxophone solos. His traveling companion comes down with dengue fever, an infectious disease spread by mosquitoes, but guy is simultaneously struck with inspiration and returns to Los Angeles with an idea and an armful of secondhand cassettes. That was Ethan Holtzman, now the bands Farfisa organ player. Part II of the bands creation story comes later, in Long Beachs Little Phnom Penh neighborhood, where Holtzman and his brother, Zac, a ...
Aid has been successful in treating malaria in South-East Asia. However, a new drug-resistant strain on the rise reignites concerns around the disease. Artemisinin-resistant malaria has the potential to undermine malaria prevention and was first recorded in the Mekong River region of Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. In 2014 and 2015, studies conducted by Vietnams National Malaria Control Program found treatment failure rates ranging from 26% to 46%.. From the perspectives of non-profits and medical experts, the rise of this new Artemisinin-resistant malaria in South-East Asia means surveillance efforts must be bolstered to prevent global spread. Likewise, instead of merely treating already-present cases, the goal must be preventing transmission in the first place. According to Chris Plowe, the director of the Duke Global Health Institute, is using all the tools available to the institute to eliminate aggressive malaria in the Greater Mekong subregion.. Overall, direct aid, community mobilization ...

Cambodia - Civil war: In March 1970, while Prince Sihanouk was visiting the Soviet Union, the National Assembly voted to remove him from office as head of state. Lon Nol subsequently took control of the government. Confused and hurt, Sihanouk traveled to Beijing and accepted Chinese advice to resist the coup by taking charge of a united front government-in-exile. That government was to be allied with China and North Vietnam and was to use the Cambodian communist forces led by Saloth Sar, which only a few days before had been fighting against Sihanouks army. In Phnom Penh, Lon Nols new government was initially popular,

By Tessa Collier, Undergraduate Nursing Student. Today, the undergraduate nursing students went back to Hope Hospital here in Phnom Penh while the graduate nursing students went on home visits in the area. This morning eleven students and our three professors piled into the hospital van with several huge, military green duffel bags full of supplies to donate to the hospital. Dr. Massie led a Memorial Day themed devotion en route. When we arrived, we walked into the lobby to take a group photo with all of our donations. I have noticed that so many people want to take photos with us, and I have not encountered that on previous study abroad and mission trips I have been on.. Our group of eight students split into two, and we were led on a tour of the hospital. We were informed that Hope is known throughout the country for providing excellent care, and Cambodian nursing students love having the opportunity to learn at the hospital. Our guide explained to us how the hospital used to take pride in ...

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), illness and death in the majority of cases in Cambodia has been due to a severe form of hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) related to Enterovirus 71, which is seen in many countries worldwide.. The illness has mostly been found in Cambodias capital city of Phnom Penh and its vicinity, including along the Mekong River. The situation there is currently under WHO supervision, Dr Pasakorn said.. In Thailand, the outbreak has occurred mainly in the central and the northeastern areas, followed by the north and south, in nurseries and kindergarten schools. Most patients are children of 3-5 years old, bur the symptoms are also found in some children older than age 5.. The Epidemiology Bureau director said his organisation is speeding up measures for disease control and prevention. Clear guidance for setting up a provincial centre to monitor hand-foot-mouth disease will be given for further cooperation in the province.. ...

The present study showed that dengue and other febrile illnesses have a substantial financial impact on households in a rural province of Cambodia. Direct medical costs accounted for about 50% of the economic impact; the remaining 50% included non-medical costs of caring for the ill child and actual loss of income due to work loss or the need to pay someone to take care of their rice fields. To pay these costs, two-thirds of households had to borrow money and 25% had to sell assets or use their savings.. This study assessed the cost of a dengue febrile illness irrespective of whether the person was hospitalized or not. This distinction is particularly important to a country because the greater burden of disease is due to persons cared for as outpatients [4], yet most published dengue cost-of-illness studies have focused on hospitalized patients [6, 8-10]. As expected, the total costs to the household increased dramatically if the child was hospitalized, but at US$ 14, the cost of ...

The governments Disability Action Council (DAC) on Monday announced that it would be including speech therapy in its strategic plan for the next four years to address the problem of speech and swallowing disorders.. DAC Secretary-General Em Chan Makara said the decision comes after research, conducted by the Capacity Building of People with a Disability in the Community Organization (Cabdico), found that communication and swallowing disorders affect an estimated 536,000 people in Cambodia. Speech therapy can also help people with cognitive impairments, epilepsy and learning difficulties, meaning that about 600,000 people in total could benefit, Mr. Chan Makara told a workshop in Phnom Penh on Monday..

The huge temple is fantastic in the early morning light and will be a great start to a full day of exploring the incredible ruins of Cambodias ancient Khmer empire. After sunrise most tourists depart for Siem Reap for breakfast, but we will bring a packed breakfast in order to visit Angkor Watt after sunrise when its less crowded. We will spend the majority of the morning at Angkor Watt, the largest religious structure in the world. The grandeur of this temple is unmatched with its exquisite bas-reliefs, flooded moat, sandstone causeway, carved outer walls and three storey central temple. After Angkor Watt we will visit the decaying temple of Ta Prohm whose walls and spires are still draped in vegetation including enormous trees whose roots meander over and through the temple stones. Ta Prohm looks much as most of the ruins did when they were first discovered giving it an other-worldly feel. We will have a ...

We describe an analysis of genome variation in 825 P. falciparum samples from Asia and Africa that identifies an unusual pattern of parasite population structure at the epicenter of artemisinin resistance in western Cambodia. Within this relatively small geographic area, we have discovered several distinct but apparently sympatric parasite subpopulations with extremely high levels of genetic differentiation. Of particular interest are three subpopulations, all associated with clinical resistance to artemisinin, which have skewed allele frequency spectra and high levels of haplotype homozygosity, indicative of founder effects and recent population expansion. We provide a catalog of SNPs that show high levels of differentiation in the artemisinin-resistant subpopulations, including codon variants in transporter proteins and DNA mismatch repair proteins. These data provide a population-level genetic framework for investigating the biological origins of artemisinin resistance and for defining molecular

Thai jasmine rice and Cambodian rice share many of the same characteristics and grow mainly in neighboring geographic areas on opposite sides of the northeastern Thai-Cambodian border. Cambodian jasmine rice is cultivated in Cambodia and processed as white (milled and polished) and brown rice. Distinct Cambodian jasmine rice varieties include these three, phka rumduol, phka romeat, and phka rumdeng. Recent DNA fingerprint analysis, carried out with 18 markers, shows that all three varieties possess 18 known fragrance alleles.[4] Two varietals (phka rumduol and phka rumdeng) are distinctly Cambodian with 17 markers in identical positions, with Thai jasmine rice and one fragrance marker each in a different position.[citation needed] The analysis of Cambodian phka romeat shows all 18 markers in identical positions with the trademarked Thai jasmine rice Thai hom mali.[citation needed]. Jasmine rice, though grown in Laos and southern Vietnam, is not the predominant rice variety. Glutinous rice is ...
Kamni, tako gladki kot poliran marmor, so bili postavljeni brez malte z zelo tesnimi stiki, ki jih je včasih težko najti. Bloki so v nekaterih primerih zvezani skupaj z utori in peresom, v drugih pa so uporabili lastovičji rep in gravitacijo. Bloke so verjetno postavljali s pomočjo slonov, kokosovih vrvi, škripci in odri iz bambusa. Henri Mouhot je opozoril, da je imela večina blokov luknje 2,5 cm v premeru in 3 cm globoke, z več luknjami na večjih blokih. Nekateri strokovnjaki menijo, da so bili ti uporabljeni da se jih poveže skupaj z železnimi palicami, drugi pa trdijo, da so bili uporabljeni za začasne kljukice, da bi jim pomagale pri manevriranju pri vgradnji..

A Simple Seller of Noodles unveils the gripping story of SamSan, an illegitimate child of a Vietnamese peasant who rose from near-infanticide in a garbage can to become a tour guide for the royal familys tourist service and best friends with Prince Sihanouks nephew as well as a highly sought-after interpreter for the Cambodian military. It also gives the account of his fall from favor and ensuing imprisonment, his dramatic rescue by the Khmer Rouge only to be caught up in Pol Pots death march, his family fracture and sadistic serfdom under Khmer Rouge rule, and his almost impossible journey to freedom in Thailand and, later, the United States.. An almost unbelievable but true story, A Simple Seller of Noodles also contains murder, war heroism, drug smuggling, a love triangle, a lost child, and multiple near death experiences. How SamSan and his fellow refugees came to live in the small town of Winder, Georgia is also an intriguing story in itself. Nothing that compared to that groups coming ...

THAILAND still opposes Cambodias proposal that the Unesco World Heritage Committee manage the area around the ancient Preah Vihear temple, according to remarks by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva yesterday. Ive told my Cambodian counterpart that Thailand will continue using the watershed mark as the border between both countries, Abhisit said during his weekly broadcast in Bangkok. Thailand will abide by the International Court of Justices ruling in 1962 and is against Cambodias move to submit its management plan for the Preah Vihear to the World Heritage Committee in June next year, as it could lead to more conflicts, he said. Spokesman for the Council of Ministers Phay Siphan said Abhisits statement indicates the two governments remain at odds over the controversial issue.
