Show 156: Female Drug Users & Landmine Victims


Show 156: Female Drug Users & Landmine Victims – Recently, Equity Weekly investigated the status and practices of the country’s drug rehabilitation centers. Noticing that only men are allowed as patients, Equity Weekly now asks: Where do female drug addicts go for help?

Private clinics that help women are very expensive. Where can poor female drug addicts go to get treatment?

Our youth reporter profiles some of the young victims, and looks at the progress made in making Cambodia, one day, completely landmine free.
