Currently, policies and regulations that govern provision of HIV services in Cambodia are more oriented toward the public sector. This leaves the private health sector insufficiently regulated despite patients seeking HIV services from these facilities. To better understand the regulatory landscape faced by private sector providers as it pertains to HIV service provision in Cambodia, the National AIDS Authority, with support from HP+, conducted a comprehensive legal and regulatory assessment of private sector provision of HIV services. The assessment builds on HP+’s prior broader legal and regulatory assessment of private healthcare provision in Cambodia that focused on private providers’ perceptions of licensing and accreditation processes and requirements. This brief summarizes key findings from the assessment and provides policy recommendations to the National HIV program on how to ensure that the private health sector’s contribution to the HIV response is (1) aligned with national policies and regulations and (2) is captured and effectively overseen by the government. This will ultimately lead to a more effective, expansive, and sustainable HIV response in Cambodia.
