H.E. Senior Minister Ieng Mouly: Cambodia and Global Fund Have Achieved Common Great Goals in Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria

His Excellency Senior Minister Ieng Mouly, Chair of the National AIDS Authority, has said that Cambodia and the Global Fund have achieved the common great goals in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria in the past decade and that they are continuing in the right direction. Through partnership, mutual cordiality, and cooperation, Cambodia is already approaching the goals of combating HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria.

H.E. Senior Minister made the remarks while presiding over the second workshop, held at Raffle Le Royal Hotel on the morning of 20 March 2019, to disseminate the 2019 information on the assessment of the country’s future by the Cambodia-based Global Fund.

In attendance at the event were some 70 leading managers of the National AIDS Authority; representatives of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Ministry of Health, Technical Evaluation Team, German Embassy, and World Bank; members of the Country Coordinating Committee, and delegates of UNAIDS, World Health Organization, and civil society working on AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

H.E. Senior Minister added that two years ago, the Global Fund’s Board of Directors, through its Technical Evaluation Reference Group, requested an assessment of country’s future, with the aim of providing a comprehensive recommendation on the Global Fund’s implementation and strategic impacts in “investment to end epidemics” in 2017-2020. This activity is currently going on in eight countries. We are fortunate and honored with Cambodia being selected among those countries.

The National AIDS Authority Chair further said that the assessment of country’s future has operated in Cambodia two years already, in an atmosphere needing change and evolvement. As new direct aid recipient, the Ministry of Economy and Finance plays a new role and has new responsibility in conjunction with the Ministry of Health. It is crucial that the reduction of aid from outside donors to Cambodia has induced the Royal Government of Cambodia to become directly involved in the national-level response to AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Moreover, health aspect changes, too, have triggered the assessment of concerned countries’ future to grow stronger.

It should be pointed out that some of the main purposes of the workshop   were to:

1. Exhibit the general aspects of the Global Fund’s activities in the assessment of country’s future in 2018;

2. Exhibit the synthesis of the results of the Global Fund’s model business in assessing the eight countries’ future;

3. Exhibit the evaluation process and estimate of the impacts of Cambodia’s future assessment results.

4. Provide opportunities for country stakeholders to debate priority issues for 2018;

5. Validate and adjust the priority issues proposed for 2019, and

6. Assist the stakeholders to procure their shares.
