Phnom Penh: 2009. 62 p.
Cambodia. Senate and National Assembly
This handbook will reinforce the work of the Cambodia National Assembly and Senate in response to the epidemic, in which they have been engaged since 2006 with the support of UNAIDS and UNDP. Unlike any other contemporary pandemic, HIV and AIDS cannot be seen as merely a health concern for a population. Governments must recognize the complex economic, social and humanitarian pressures that come with a maturing and evolving epidemic. Without this recognition Cambodia may see the successes of the past quickly erode. This doucment presents an overview of the epidemic in Cambodia, parliamentary actions on HIV and AIDS and reasons for Cambodian success. Information is given about most at risk populations and major prevention initiatives, policy and legislation.
