Cambodia is successfully controlling and managing its HIV epidemic, however, in 2017, less than a quarter of the response was funded by the government, with the remainder supported by donors. To drive policy change for a more sustainable and domestically financed HIV response, HP+ engaged with Cambodia’s National AIDS Authority on several activities focusing on evidence generation, capacity building, policy advocacy, and technical dialogue. In February 2019, this work culminated with the Council of Ministers ratifying a policy circular (SCN 213), with the Prime Minister’s approval, which—among other things—increases allocation of resources for HIV. This brief summarizes the policy engagement process and lessons learned.
