Cambodia: Representatives of Homosexual Groups Elected to Raise AIDS Awareness

July 7, 2006

On June 30, six men were chosen to represent a national network of gay men to help raise AIDS awareness in Cambodia. Local health organizations offered 11 candidates for the positions, said Chuop Sok Chamroeun, a program officer at Khana, which is working to fight AIDS. The six will become "one voice representing [men who have sex with men] in Cambodia," he said, adding that the group has been working with more than 3,000 gay men in three provinces. Among these men, knowledge of condoms and the dangers of unprotected sex were very low, he noted. A 2004 report by the Washington-based Policy Project called gay men in Cambodia "a very high-risk group" for transmitting HIV, since many of them also have sex with women.
