As part of an assessment of private sector engagement in the HIV response in Cambodia, HP+ explored the role of the private sector in delivering viral load testing services. Findings show that there is currently enough viral load testing capacity in the public sector, although there are challenges around data quality, provider adherence to viral load clinical guidelines, counseling and communication of test results, infrastructure and connectivity, and reliance on donor resources to fund the viral load testing program. In the private sector, more can be done to strengthen reporting and to clarify the regulatory environment that governs private sector provision of viral load testing services. The assessment was conducted through key informant interviews and review of secondary information available in reports produced by the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and Sexually Transmitted Diseases and other partners.
