Country profiles on HIV/AIDS


Cambodia, which faced one of the fastest growing HIV epidemics in Asia in the mid 1990s with a generalized epidemic within the last two decades, has become one of the few countries to have reversed the trend. The HIV epidemic is now concentrated among sex workers, men who have sex with men as well as people who inject drugs in certain areas.
