Cambodian Villagers Angry Over Unlicensed Medical Practitioner Who Allegedly Infected More Than 200 With HIV

New York Times: Shock and Anger in Cambodian Village Struck With HIV
“…Even in a country inured to hardship and suffering, the [HIV] infection of such a large number of people within a radius of a few miles was shocking. … What the [more than 200] victims appear to have in common is that they were treated by Yem Chrin, a village medical practitioner who was charged last month with aggravated murder, intentionally spreading HIV and practicing without a medical license…” (Fuller/Neou, 1/19).
