In order to learn about China's experience in health emergency response and improve their own dengue fever emergency response plan, a three-person delegation from Cambodia, led by Chea Huch, deputy director of the country's National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control under the Ministry of Health, visited the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) on Dec 6, 2023. 
Experts from both sides held technical discussions. 
A staff member from the Public Health Emergency Center of the China CDC introduced the center's responsibilities and organizational structure, and their engagement in domestic and international public health emergencies responses.
Another attendant from the Division of Infectious Diseases of the China CDC outlined the department's dengue fever prevention and control work, especially the building of a surveillance and prevention and control system in this area. 
The Cambodian experts outlined the current dengue fever epidemic situation, prevention and control strategies, action guidelines and specific prevention measures in their country.
Chea Huch expressed his hope to learn from China's experience to better cope with the dengue fever outbreaks, which placed a heavy burden on Cambodia. During the meeting, the two sides also had in-depth exchanges on how to further improve the emergency response plan based on Cambodia's conditions.
