Cambodia has made significant improvements on its health indicators but challenges remain.

USAID supports Cambodia’s efforts to reduce the burden of infectious diseases, advancing progress toward ending tuberculosis, eliminating malaria, controlling HIV/AIDS, and strengthening global health security. Strengthening the health system contributes to reduced infant mortality, under-5 child mortality, and maternal mortality while increasing access to quality health services. 


Over the past five years, USAID has: 

  • Advanced Cambodia’s HIV response through significant progress in prevention, case detection and expansion of HIV treatment, which substantially reduced HIV related morbidity and mortality. In addition, in 2022, 86 percent of the estimated 76,000 people living with HIV had been diagnosed, 99 percent of whom were on antiretroviral treatment, and 97 percent of those on treatment had an undetectable viral load.

  • Distributed over 37,000 insecticide-treated nets in target areas and educated over 59,000 people through malaria screening and testing. Cambodia has had no malaria fatalities since 2018.

  • Helped the national tuberculosis (TB) program achieve UN targets with 90 percent case notification, 91 percent pediatric TB case notification, and 85 percent TB preventive therapy enrollment.

  • USAID also worked through the regional "One Health Workforce-Next Generation" network to train Cambodian health professionals from the Ministries of Health and Agriculture as well as academic institutions to prevent, detect, and respond to human and zoonotic disease threats such as COVID-19.
