Transforming Lives of People with HIV in Cambodia

by Sihanouk Hospital Corporation


Every year, our Home Care Team serves as a lifeline for 400 Cambodian families affected by HIV, empowering them to overcome illness and poverty. This outreach program provides free medical care, health education, counseling and temporary food support alongside employment and education assistance. With your help, we can continue this important work, enabling HIV clients to overcome challenges of stigma, illness and medical expenses as they regain better health and control over their futures.

Approximately 74,000 Cambodians are living with HIV today. They face social stigma, discrimination and high, recurrent medical costs, which can prevent them from accessing health facilities, earning income and providing for their families. When parents living with HIV are too unwell to work, their children are often sent to unsafe orphanages or pulled out of school to work, as a way to alleviate financial strain or to earn income for the family.


Your donation supports HIV clients through the provision of home-based care. This includes support for clients to maintain treatment plans, access health services, and receive counseling, emotional support and education to prevent HIV transmission to children during childbirth and breastfeeding. Clients can access food support if their ability to earn income is impacted by illness, and livelihood development is supported, for example, by providing employment assistance and referral to training.

Long-Term Impact

With quality of life and health, people living with HIV can earn income, support families, send children to school and build self-esteem. This transformative impact provides opportunity for clients to lift themselves out of poverty and not be defined by illness. We help to create long-term impact by providing quality healthcare services while also addressing socio-economic challenges faced by people living with HIV. The result is healthier individuals, happier families and brighter futures.
