On October 2, 2015, the new Social Health Protection Project (SHP) III was officially launched during a workshop with partners from the Ministry of Health, civil society and project partners at Raffles Hotel Le Royal. The new SHP Project will continue to support the Royal Government of Cambodia from September 2015 until December 2018 in:
