Khmer HIV/ AIDS NGO Alliance (KHANA)

Initially established in 1996 as a project of International HIV/AIDS Alliance, KHANA operated as an NGO from 1997 and was officially registered as a local NGO in 2000. Since then it has operated as a linking organization of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and is one of the most respected and recognized organizations focusing on HIV and AIDS in Cambodia today.

To contribute to the development, health and well-being of communities through reducing vulnerability and mitigating the impact of HIV and AIDS.

Advocating for a Cambodia where all people have equal access to quality HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment free from discrimination.

On Facebook they share a very impressive and touching movie about the great work they are doing. Really can recommend everyone to take some time to watch this movie.

Sal is one of 1520 orphans living with HIV in Cambodia. His mother abandoned him at the foot of a bamboo tree when he was only three months old. He is a very brave young man and he would like to share his story with you....
