Cambodia Expanding the Continuum of Care to Children. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2006)

Cambodia Expanding the Continuum of Care to Children. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2006) Current reports place the HIV prevalence rate in Cambodia at 1.9% 1of the general population. Although this is small compared with many nations in sub-Saharan Africa, it is the highest sero- prevalence in the South-east Asia region. It is noteworthy that this rate has actually declined over the past five years – which is a testament to the political commitment of the Government of Cambodia and the success of HIV prevention programs that have resulted in almost universal acceptance of condom usage.

Child Protection and Children Affected by AIDS. UNICEF (2006)

Child Protection and Children Affected by AIDS. UNICEF (2006) The past six years have seen increasing engagement by the international community on HIV, AIDS and children. One of the eight Millennium Development Goals set by governments in 2000 relates directly to HIV and AIDS. In 2001, at the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS, governments pledged to protect children affected by the disease. Global commitment to combat the impact of HIV and AIDS on children was again outlined in 2002 in ‘A World Fit for Children’, the outcome document of the UN General Assembly Special Session on Children.

Children and HIV/AIDS in Cambodia: 2006 Background Report. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2006)

Children and HIV/AIDS in Cambodia: 2006 Background Report. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2006)
Cambodia has been heralded worldwide as an HIV/AIDS "success story." Sentinel surveillance data show a steady decrease in HIV prevalence, from a high of 3.0 percent in 1997 to the current level of 1.9 percent among people in the age group 15-45 years (HSS 2003). This represents about 123,000 adults (57,000 women) living with HIV/AIDS in Cambodia. Moreover, an estimated 12,000 children are infected with HIV. The prevalence among antenatal care attendees declined from 2.5 percent in 1999 to 2.1 percent in 2003. Cambodia is one of the few countries that has been able to reach the 3 by 5 target of having at least 50 percent of people who need anti-retroviral (ARV) treatment receiving it. As of 31 December 2005 a total of 11,284 adults (men 5,861/women 5,423) and 1,071 children (boys 567 / girls 504) received ARV treatment.

Global Campaign on Children and AIDS: A Profile of UNICEF’s Response in East Asia and the Pacific. UNICEF (2006)

Global Campaign on Children and AIDS: A Profile of UNICEF’s Response in East Asia and the Pacific. UNICEF (2006) East Asia and the Pacific currently has an HIV adult prevalence of 0.2 per cent – the lowest in the world. An estimated 2.3 million people are living with HIV in the region, including 750,000 women and 50,000 children below the age of 14. These figures give cause for hope. The low prevalence marks a huge opportunity in curtailing the epidemic and stopping its spread into the general population. However, they can also lend a false sense of security. Given East Asia’s enormous population of nearly 2 billion, even a tiny increase in prevalence results in many more infected.

Management of HIV Infection and Antiretroviral Therapy in Infants and Children: A Clinical Manual. WHO and UNICEF (2006)

Management of HIV Infection and Antiretroviral Therapy in Infants and Children: A Clinical Manual. WHO and UNICEF (2006) These guidelines are based on the discussions held with health-care workers, researchers and programme managers from South-East Asia during a regional consultation organized by the World Health Organization Regional Office for South-East Asia (WHO SEARO) and the United Nations Children's Fund Regional Office for South Asia (UNICEF ROSA) in New Delhi during 2006. This consultation meeting reviewed the new data, experiences of scaling-up of pediatric ART in the Region and made recommendations for adaptation to the needs in the Region of the global WHO guidelines on Antiretroviral therapy of HIV infection in infants and children in resource-limited settings: towards universal access. To facilitate use at the country level the consultation recommended simplification of the global guidelines.

Recommendations on the Diagnosis of HIV Infection in Infants and Children. WHO (2006)

Recommendations on the Diagnosis of HIV Infection in Infants and Children. WHO (2006) The majority of HIV infected children acquire the virus from their HIV infected mothers around the time of delivery or during breastfeeding. The most efficient and cost effective way to tackle paediatric HIV globally is, therefore, to reduce mother-to-child transmission (MTCT). However, every day there are nearly 1500 new infections in children under 15 years of age, more than 90% occurring in the developing world. HIV-infected infants frequently present with clinical symptoms in the first year of life, by one year of age an estimated one-third of infected infants will have died, and about half by 2 years of age. Early recognition of HIV exposure and diagnosis of HIV is crucial and can save lives by enabling early initiation of appropriate care including ART.
