Abstract

"In 1994, the Cambodian National AIDS Programme decided to initiate an active annual HIV/AIDS surveillance programme with the support of WHO. Two goals were identified for the programme. The first was to gather and analyse additional HIV and AIDS epidemiological information. The second was to elucidate the extent of the HIV epidemic in selected areas and among selected population groups...
The objectives of the 200[0] HSS were:
1. to report the current prevalence of HIV infection in selected sentinel population groups by province in 2000;
2. to report the prevalence of HIV infection in selected young populations (female sex workers and police) as a surrogate for incidence;
3. to estimate the number of people living with HIV infection in 2000, and the national prevalence among adults 15-49 years of age in recent years, based on data available in 2000 and taking into consideration newly available information and past experience;
4. to understand the dynamics of the epidemic so as to guide future prevention and care programming; and
5. to evaluate the impact of current interventions and to inform
future planning of prevention and care efforts."
