The United States is proud to support Cambodia’s leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. PEPFAR provides targeted assistance in Cambodia to maximize the quality, coverage, and impa

ct of the national HIV/AIDS response. Working together with the Royal Government of Cambodia, the private sector, civil society, and other development partners, PEPFAR is supporting efforts to strengthen national capacity to implement and evaluate HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs, particularly for key populations. Specific priorities include the following:

  • Supporting the national government to appropriately lead, manage, implement, and oversee the national program
  • Sustaining prevention efforts with key populations while also looking toward new approaches to ensure the long-term effectiveness of these efforts
  • Defining a solution to the long-term affordability of Cambodia’s HIV/AIDS response and advocating for increased government commitment of resources as donor funding declines
  • Addressing emerging risks such as unsafe medical injection practices
  • Strengthening key information systems needed to assure transparency, accountability, and better use of data to find unidentified HIV cases
  • Piloting new and innovative prevention, care, and treatment approaches to support the achievement of UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets and improve Cambodia’s long-term sustainable response to the epidemic and the achievement of zero new infections
