Phnom Penh: Recently, there has been a publicity campaign on Facebook for treating various illnesses, including AIDS.
People are asking Minister of Health Mam Bun Heng to take legal action against such totally exaggerated claims.
Advertising says “Traditional medicine, Tep Pov” and continues that it provides treatment for HIV, brain cancer, lung cancer, Liver, stomach, colon, breast cancer, uterine cancer, nasal cancer, red blood, diabetes, high blood pressure, urinary disorders and more.
Some less educated citizens fall for this snake-oil, losing money, and affecting health. Many hope that Health Minister Mam Bun Heng will take action on this issue.
