Cambodia set an example for AIDS prevention and control in Asia. The government, helped by partners like USAID, UKAID and several others, have exerted huge efforts to reduce the spread of HIV. The result is that the population prevalence declined from 1.2% in 2001, to 0.5% in 2009. But there’s still a lot more work to do… In the left picture, a safe sex campaign on Sivutha Blvd in 1998.
