Risk/Reward Index

Cambodia's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index (RRI) score for Q115 is 32.4 out of the maximum 100. The country scored below average for almost all indicators and sub-indicators including overall market expenditure, sector value growth and pensionable population. Consequently, with this low score, Cambodia ranks second-to-last out of the 19 key markets in Asia Pacific, ahead of Myanmar.

Key Trends And Developments

* In December 2014, the Cambodian authorities announced plans to implement a universal healthcare programme as part of the country's 10-year National Social Protection Strategy. Projected to be in place by 2025, the scheme will be a significant improvement on current forms of coverage, including the Community Based Health Insurance scheme - which targets workers in the informal sector.
* In the same month, authorities confirmed that there were more than 100 HIV positive patients in a remote village, Roka in Cambodia. Prime Minister Hu Sen called for an investigation, as the mass infection was allegedly spread by contaminated needles used in medical treatment by an unlicensed healthcare worker.
