Run toward no new HIV Infections, no discrimination and no AIDS-related death

Approximately 200 people from KHANA and its implementing partners including entertainment workers, people who use drug, men who have sex with men, transgender, and people living with HIV participated in the celebration of the World AIDS Day in coincidence with the 18th Angkor Half Marathon 2013 in Siem Reap province.

This year KHANA organized four main activities in the World AIDS Day event in Siem Reap and they were radio live talk shows on FM102.90MHz, press conference, Half Marathon with HIV educational messages, and the booth displaying and disseminating HIV educational materials to passers-by.

Run toward no new HIV Infections, no discrimination and no AIDS-related death are messages reminding of Cambodia's political committment to three zeros. In the press release and press conference for various leading local and international newspapers, radios, televisions and other international news agencies, KHANA hopes that Cambodia might achieve its commitment. However, HACC raises concerns that migrant workers would be highly considered as well in relation to the efforts to reduce new HIV infections.

The World AIDS event in Siem Reap was jointly organized between KHANA and its implementing partners together with other NGOs including HACC, CPN+, AUA, CWPD, MHC, WNU, BC, SCC, and KORSANG. KHANA also participated in the World AIDS Event held the same day at Chaktomuk theater in Phnom Penh.

HIV Prevalence
It is reminded that Cambodia is recognized for efforts on HIV that have contributed to a decline in HIV prevalence from an estimated 2 percent (among adults aged 15-49) in 1998 to a 0.7 percent in 2013 [UNCHADS]. 

Cambodia has also achieved the universal access target for treatment, with over 90 percent of adults and children in need receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART), due to the expansion of the Continuum of Care programme established in 2003.

HIV Policy
Innovative prevention programming in Cambodia over the last 10 years has included the introduction of the 100 percent Condom Use Policy which showed successes in preventing new infections.

PLHIV in Cambodia
In 2013 NCHADS presents that Cambodia has 71,347 people living with HIV countrywide and therein 38,420 are women. In addition, approximately 6,850 children aging from 0 to 14 are living with HIV and therein 3,354 are girls.
