Havana: The Prime Minister of Cambodia, Hun Sen, has ordered the Minister of Health, Mr. Mam Bunheng, to cooperate with the Cuban Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology to co-import or produce the Cancer and Diabetes vaccine.

According to the institute's management, Cuba is currently facing serious economic and social crises, including shortages of food, medicine, medical supplies, food, housing, foreign debt default, rising migration and high inflation.
In an effort to contribute to economic recovery, Fidel Castro set up the center to increase research to contribute to the further development of Cuba. The center has grown in quality in science, engineering, genetics and biotechnology, especially in the field of health research through the development of the Cuban Covid-19 vaccine, the Diabetes Vaccine, which is made in Cuba.

The leadership of the Institute has accepted PM's request and will continue to cooperate with the Ministry of Health of Cambodia.
