The launch of the second phase of Health Equity and Quality Improvement (HEQIP-2) project in Phnom Penh was presided over by Mam Bunheng, Minister of Health, Hem Vanndy, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, and Pablo Kang, Australian Ambassador to Cambodia.

Representatives from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), German Embassy in Cambodia, the World Bank, and Global Financing Facility for Women and Girls also joined the event.
