Abstract

"Being orphaned or vulnerable are not new phenomena in Cambodia, and the response of families and communities to the children orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS has been compassionate and remarkably resilient given the trauma experienced over the last 4 decades and the widespread poverty. However, many households are experiencing difficulty in meeting their basic needs. Much of the burden of caring for family members with AIDS falls on children or affects their access to protection, care and support.

This plan seeks to address the underlying causes of vulnerability among orphans and the most vulnerable children, while also addressing the more specific and specialised needs of children affected by HIV."
