About CPN+

The Cambodian People Living with HIV/AIDS Network (CPN+) is a national network established in July 2001 in response to Cambodia's rapidly growing HIV epidemic. CPN+ works to strengthen the policy synergy between the HIV response at national, district, and community levels through meaningful involvement of people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS (PLHIV) in the development of policies, plans and programs for PLHIV and those at most risk of HIV. CPN+ facilitates national and sub-national coordination of the network members, and coordinates activities by its members to mitigate the impact of the HIV epidemic and improve the quality of life for PLHIV in Cambodia.

  • The network consists of 939 support groups of PLHIV across the country . In addition, CPN+ has established fourteen Provincial Networks of PLHIV, including 29 Friends Help Friends Centers (Mondul Mith Chouy Mith) (as of 2010).
  • CPN+'s vision is of a society where people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS continue to live a positive life.
  • CPN+'s mission is to strengthen the capacity and involvement of PLHIV and empower them with collective voice to prevent new infections, eliminate stigma and discrimination, protect their rights, and sustain their well-being.
