Fewer Cambodians Test Positive for HIV in 2007

February 27, 2008

According to a report in the local Mekong Times, the proportion of Cambodians testing positive for HIV in 2007 dropped, even as more people presented for screening. Figures from the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STDs show that almost 300,000 underwent testing in 2007, of whom 5 percent were HIV-positive. The previous year, 7 percent of 230,000 people tested were positive. World Health Organization figures show that Cambodia’s HIV prevalence rate fell from 2 percent in 1998 to 0.9 percent in 2006.
