KUNMING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- China has sent a medical team of 13 doctors, nurses and other health specialists to Cambodia to serve the country's rural communities.

The members of the medical team are from seven hospitals in southwest China's Yunnan Province, including specialists in cardiology, ophthalmology and infectious diseases.

They will visit three Cambodian provinces for about 20 days, said Ma Linkun, deputy dean of the Yunnan Fuwai Cardiovascular Diseases Hospital and head of the medical team.

According to Ma, the team is jointly organized by the Ministry of Commerce and the Yunnan Fuwai Cardiovascular Disease Hospital.

China previously delivered 20 mobile clinics in May to Cambodia to provide on-the-spot primary care for patients living in rural communities.
