The World Health Organization (WHO), along with two international organizations on Monday commended Cambodia for taking actions in regulating Breast Milk Substitutes (BMS) and responding to parents’ complaints promptly.

“We greatly appreciate the government’s swift action to suspend the sale of BMS products from companies failing to meet international standards to protect the health and well-being of children and their mothers,” said a joint statement released by the WHO, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the Helen Keller International (HKI).

The statement was signed by Li Ailan, representative of WHO-Cambodia, Foroogh Foyouzat, representative of UNICEF-Cambodia, and Gwyneth Cotes, country director of HKI-Cambodia.
