recent years, Cambodia has made great strides in turning the tide of
the HIV epidemic; however, young people and particularly orphans remain
vulnerable and often do not receive sufficient attention from HIV/AIDS
prevention organizations. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic,
teachers and trainers are often shy to bring up issues related to
HIV/AIDS in the classroom and community. This is one of the reasons why
GSC HIV/AIDS Prevention volunteers are needed in Cambodia to help close
this education gap, increase teachers’ and trainers’
comfort levels in engaging in open dialogue with students, and keep
future generations safe from the disease. The HIV/AIDS prevention
training has now been embedded in a broad public health education
program to address a gamut of community health issues.
