NGOs urge AIDS effort

A COALITION of local groups working on HIV/AIDS issues has expressed concern that Cambodia might not meet its United Nations Millennium Development Goal targets for treatment and prevention. In a statement yesterday, the HIV/AIDS Coordinating Committee stated that “inadequate comprehensive treatment provisions, discrimination and human rights abuses towards people living with HIV, and persistently high rates of infection among ‘most at-risk populations’” could undermine the substantial progress made to date. According to the UN’s Cambodia website, however, the Kingdom is on target to meet its six HIV/AIDS-related goals. Cambodia has been lauded for successfully reducing HIV infection rates to about 0.7 percent in the past decade.
