Salvation Centre Cambodia
Salvation Centre Cambodia (SCC) began in 1994 with the initial aim of encouraging Buddhist monks to reduce the stigma associated with HIV by educating their communities on HIV/AIDS, in particular on its causes, its effects and on possible prevention measures. Providing foodAt the same time, the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Cambodia spread increasingly up to an all-time high prevalence rate of 2.4 percent in 1998. But a joint effort of international aid organizations, NGOs and national authorities led to a decline to about 0.7 percent in 2013. Contributing its faith-based development approach to this 'national answer', SCC has been a proud partner in Cambodia's success.
