Anyone know the phone number/add of diabetes clinic

in Kampong Cham? I just read this: "In addition, with funds more recently allocated by the World Diabetes Foundation, three provincial centers at Pursat, Kampong Cham and Prey Veng were established in 2007. The four clinics (Siemreap, Battambang, Pursat,and Kampong Thom) will provide the structureplanned by the Cambodian Diabetes Association(CDA) for its so-called “Great Lakes Project.” The two clinics at Prey Veng and Kampong Cham will cover the CDA’s “Mekong Project,” once a clinicat Kratie has been established. Together, these two projects will provide diabetes care for a population of almost 10 million people."

My email to the two most junior members on the World Diabetes Foundation contact list did not garner a response, so I emailed the communications manager who had visited Cambodia with the Managing Director in 2007. I hope he'll at least tell me the phone number of the clinic.

I also managed to find this doctor, "cochinjew" who wrote about "Doctoring in Kampong Cham": "It is amazing how little visited are the places outside Siem Reap and Phnom Penh are. I was invited to visit the local doctor in charge of Diabetes at the Kampong Cham Hospital. It had the lazy feeling of an erstwhile colonial town, the main streets are broad and there are very new buildings including the new hotel. The hospital buildings are from the colonial times and the new diabetes clinic is ready to be open. I plan to be back in Kampong Cham."

I sent Dr cochinjew a message too. It really should not be too hard to find the new clinic. If no one replies my emails, I have told Chhun Hy to go to the hospital in Kampong Cham. I am sure the local doctor in charge of diabetes there will be able to refer his father to the specialised clinic.
