HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has become one of the world’s most serious health and development challenges since the first cases were reported in 1981. Approximately 77 million people have become infected with HIV since the start of the epidemic. Today, there are approximately 36.9 million people currently living with HIV, and tens of millions of people have died of AIDS-related causes since the beginning of the epidemic.
This report provides the latest data on donor government resources available to address HIV in low- and middle-income countries. It is part of a collaborative effort between UNAIDS and the Kaiser Family Foundation that began more than a decade ago, just as new global initiatives were being launched to address the epidemic. This current report provides data on donor government disbursements in 2016, the most recent year available.
In recent years, Cambodia has made progress in efforts to address violence against children and important steps have been taken to develop core laws, policies, specific strategies and regulatory frameworks for child protection. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has taken action in many sectors to address violence, abuse, exploitation, and neglect, as well as including these issues in the National Strategic Development Plan and the National Action Plan on Violence Against Women. Significant challenges remain for the implementation of these structures in the absence of a comprehensive and centralized national child protection system and workforce.

In this way, the existing policies in the health sector have been reviewed to guide development of health related policies in the changed context. This report critically examines the health related existing policies and their relevancy in future in the federal context.

‘Taking stock: A decade of drug policy’ evaluates the impacts of drug policies implemented across the world over the past decade, using data from the United Nations (UN), complemented with peer-reviewed academic research and grey literature reports from civil society. The important role of civil society in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of global drug policies is recognised in the 2009 Political Declaration and Plan of Action on drugs, as well as in the Outcome Document of the 2016 United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs. It is in this spirit that the International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC) has produced this Shadow Report, to contribute constructively to high-level discussions on the next decade in global drug policy.
