The EU and the US Government have committed significant funds to Cambodia

for development, health and democracy programs. The US government provided $36.5

million in aid in 2002, split between two projects. The first aims to reduce child

and maternal mortality through an HIV/AIDS prevention program. The second program

supports NGOs in their quest to promote civil rights, and aims to help political

parties develop effective internal procedures. On Nov 12 the EU pledged $63.2 million

for rural, social and trade development for 2002-2004.
