U.N. Agencies Grant $37.8 Million to Cambodia for Five-Year HIV/AIDS Combat

September 23, 2011

Under an agreement signed Monday, the UN will provide $37.8 million between now and 2015 to help Cambodia enact an HIV/AIDS prevention plan. Some 75,000 Cambodians in 60,000 households are living with HIV/AIDS, the UN Development Program estimates, of whom more than 90 percent have received antiretroviral drugs. The National AIDS Authority -- whose chair, Nuth Sokhom, spoke at the signing -- says it needs about $50 million a year to provide HIV drugs and educational services to prevent additional infections.
