Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former US president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, arrives in Cambodia today to discuss the work of her father’s Clinton Foundation fighting HIV/AIDS in Cambodia through the
Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).
“She will meet with Minister of Health Mam Bunheng and discuss progress toward eliminating HIV infections with representatives of the National Center for HIV/AIDS,” Mean Chhivon, the centre’s director, said yesterday.
Tomorrow she is scheduled to visit Prey Veng province‘s Neak Leung Referral Hospital, according to a statement from the Clinton Foundation.
The statement adds: “Since CHAI began working with the Cambodian government in 2005, Cambodia has become one of the first countries in the world with universal access for antiretroviral treatment for adults and children, and is now working to eliminate the mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS.”
