CHEC  is a non-profit local Cambodian non-government organization (NGO), working to reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) and those affected by the disease. 

CHEC works extensively in local communities to improve health, care and support services and to educate, raise awareness and change behavior related to HIV/AIDS through its Community Based Prevention Program, Home based Care Program and Multimedia Campaigns.

CHEC has built up a strong reputation as a provider of training courses on key management skills to build staff capacity in NGOs, government agencies and other organizations. CHEC is proud to now offer 23 different courses covering a range of various HIV/AIDS Management Skills, Project Management Skills and Facilitation Management Skills. Please see the ‘Training Courses’ page of this website for more details. 

CHEC believes that sustainability of all of our programs is crucial. Therefore, we provide high-quality training to beneficiaries,

and ensure full community participation and mobilization. This creates a sense of self-reliance and ownership of responses to HIV in our beneficiary communities. This way, communities can enjoy better health and living conditions in the future. However, these activities can only continue to run if the funding is available to us. 

CHEC is a non-for-profit organization and runs its projects on the kind funding and technical support of donors. We need your continued support if we are to achieve our mission, goals and vision to improve the lives of PLHIV and reduce the spread of HIV in Cambodia.
