Illegal pharmacies face crack down in Cambodia

via CAAI News Media

Cambodia's municipal and provincial health officials are set to meet with owners of illegal pharmacies in Phnom Penh to demand that they apply for legitimate licences or face closure.

In January, the ministry of health gave a February deadline to the unlicensed pharmacies to either register or be closed.

There are 528 licensed pharmacies and 116 illegal ones in Phnom Penh alone.

Authorities say it's difficult to control and monitor the sale of expired drugs with unlicensed pharmacies operating.
