In Cambodia, FHI 360 focuses on the human development goals associated with the country’s most-at-risk populations. Our programs address a spectrum of health needs, such as prevention, treatment and care related to HIV, sexually transmitted infections, substance use, tuberculosis and malaria. We also partner with local organizations to give Cambodians access to family planning and reproductive health services. In addition, FHI 360’s Cambodia office is part of a multicountry effort to protect biodiversity and livelihoods in aquaculture.
As the country’s capacity to tackle human development challenges has grown, FHI 360 has moved increasingly toward providing technical assistance to the government and local partners, as well as conducting ground-breaking research for key affected populations. Our technical support includes the first-ever use of audio computer-assisted self-interviews as part of an integrated biological and behavioral surveillance study of 3,000 men at high risk of HIV infection. FHI 360’s qualitative and quantitative research studies are performed in collaboration with the government and with agencies such as the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS, as well as academic institutions such as Oxford Mahidol and the University of California, San Francisco.
FHI 360’s health programs in Cambodia include behavior change communication for avian influenza, technical assistance addressing neglected tropical diseases and field-based research for PREVENT, a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) program that develops effective behavior change and communication programs to reduce the risk of emerging diseases.
FHI 360’s Cambodia office is also working to protect biodiversity and the livelihoods that depend on it through the Global Fish Alliance. In the Tonle Sap Lake communities, we work to increase stakeholder collaboration in fisheries resource management and help fishing communities develop and achieve collective goals.
