Media Partnership for Reducing Stigma and Discrimination

The training workshop on “Media Partnership for Reducing Stigma and Discrimination among most-at-risk populations at higher risk of HIV HIV/AIDS Exposure in Cambodia” is being organized by NAA and sponsored and supported by UNESCO,  European Commission and KHANA. This workshop is held from 17 to 18 October 2013 in Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia and for 30 media editors and key media reporters.

“Media plays an important role in HIV prevention; for example, HIV prevention through condom use and education,” said Mr. Pen Bunna, a representative from the Club of Cambodian Journalists. Bunna said a workshop could be held for dozens of participants but media involvement may reach many thousands of people who are not in the workshop. Therefore, he said media contributes a lot to reduction of HIV/AIDS epidemic in Cambodia.

“Media also helps updates information on HIV in Cambodia. Widespread HIV transmission in the past resulted from gaps of information,” said H.E. Teng Kunthy, Secretary-General of the National AIDS Authority. 

“I would request all media professional to regularly broadcast HIV related information to the public. The today workshop aims to build partnership between civil society and media in sharing HIV related information including anti-stigma and anti-discrimination against most-at-risk population," H.E. Kunthy added.
