Launch of HIV/AIDS Flagship

KHANA and its consortium partners FHI360 and PSI organized HIV/AIDS Flagship on Wednesday, 10 April 2013, at Tep Pothivong Pagoda (Wat Thmey). The pagoda also functions as the home of Siem Reap’s branch of Salvation Center Cambodia (SCC), one of KHANA’s long-standing Implementing Partners and one of the Flagship’s community Centers of Excellence. The Flagship was awarded by USAID under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in November 2012 to a consortium of local and international partners to spearhead a sustainable and innovative HIV/AIDS response in Cambodia. Focusing on local ownership, the Flagship’s primary grantee is KHANA, while FHI 360 and PSI will provide additional technical support. The project seeks to enhance the impact, reduce costs, and improve effectiveness of the national response through technical innovation and improvements in quality and capacity to deliver sustainable HIV services. Furthermore, the project emphasizes reducing Cambodia’s dependence on USG funding for service delivery in the health sector and supporting the transition of funding from service delivery to technical assistance, in line with USAID’s funding objectives.

Over 500 participants attended the Launch, including beneficiaries, guests of honor H.E. Dr. Mam Bunheng, Minister of Health, H.E. William E. Todd, US Ambassador to Cambodia, H.E. Dr. Sou Phirin, Governor of Siem Reap, USAID Mission Director, and representatives from other government institutions, UN agencies and NGOs. H.E. Ambassador William E. Todd, KHANA Executive Director Dr. Oum Sopheap, and Minister of Health H.E. Mom Bun Heng were featured speakers at the event. A press conference was also made on-site after launching.
