Cambodia's Success in Tackling HIV/AIDS Threatened: Study

January 4, 2011

A new study finds Cambodia "will need to significantly increase its own allocation" of funding and resources if the country is to continue its widely hailed HIV/AIDS efforts.

"The Long-Run Costs and Financing of HIV/AIDS in Cambodia" was prepared with assistance from the US-based Results for Development Institute (R4D) and UNAIDS. In it, government officials compared several funding scenarios from now until 2031. Each scenario has a different price tag and rate of success in preventing new infections, and all assume the government and foreign donors will eventually split the costs.

According to the report, the most cost-effective approach focuses on preventing infections in high-risk groups such as sex workers, injecting drug users, and men who have sex with men. This strategy could see annual new infections decline to just below 1,400 by 2031. "The total cost can be kept down to $68 million a year," said Richard Skolnik of R4D.
