Short description:
KHANA is a Cambodian non-governmental organisation at the forefront of the fight against HIV/AIDS. It aspires to a Cambodia where all people, particularly those who are vulnerable, have equal access to effective, non-discriminatory HIV prevention and care and support services to improve the quality of their life. To bring this about, it collaborates with international supporters, the Cambodian government and a host of grass-roots organisations in towns and villages all over the country to develop and foster the most effective response to this devastating epidemic. This response includes prevention work, the provision of care and support, advocacy, awareness-raising and a wide variety of other initiatives and activities. Community action has always been - and will remain - the cornerstone of Khana's work. Since its formation in 1999, Khana and its partner organisations have actively involved thousands of Cambodians in finding the best solutions for the difficulties they face due to HIV/AIDS.
More precisely, Khana currently provides both financial and technical support to 63 NGO partners implementing a variety of programmes including: HIV Prevention, HIV related to drug use, Care and Support to People Living with HIV and to Orphans and Vulnerable Children, Impact Mitigation. KHANA is also involved in policy, advocacy and networking in 17 of the kingdom's 24 provinces
