HIV Prevention Report Card for MSM and Transgender People Cambodia

Published: September 14, 2011

This Report Card is one in a series produced by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) with the support of the Global Forum on MSM and HIV (MSMGF) and the United Nations
Population Fund (UNFPA). Men who have sex with men and transgender people are disproportionately affected by HIV. These communities are also often among the most marginalized
and discriminated against in society due to laws that criminalize their behaviours making it difficult for them to exercise their human rights, including accessing health services. This Report Card summarizes the current situation of HIV prevention strategies and services for men who have sex with men and transgender people in Cambodia and aims to support efforts to increase and
improve the programmatic, policy and funding actions taken on HIV prevention.

The research analyzes four key components that are widely recognized to be essential for effective action on HIVprevention for key populations:
1. Legal and social context
2. Availability of services
3. Accessibility of services
4. Participation and rights

It also provides recommendations for key national, regional and international stakeholders and service providers, to enhance action on HIV prevention strategies and services for men who have
sex with men and transgender people. This Report Card is based on extensive research carried out during 2010 including published data and in-country qualitative research in Cambodia. More detailed
information can be found in a research dossier available on request from IPPF.
