The Concern of Adult OVC in HIV Transmission

On 13 June 2011, HIV/AIDS Coordinating Committee (HACC) organized the regional forum discussion between NGOs and National AIDS Authority (NAA) in Siem Reap province with aiming at providing the opportunity to NGOs to raise their concern and issues from the grassroots levels to solve those issues within local authorities and national levels. Notably, a concern was lifting up pertaining to the adult of OVC. Recently, more than thousand OVC become adult and aged over 18 in Siem Reap province.

Some are look healthy and beautiful. As reported from local NGOs during the regional forum discussion, it was found that some OVC wish to get married for a family in which it is the concern of HIV transmission to their partner and some did not show off their status because of the fear of breaking relationship or losing their lover. Not in response, the local NGOs have not yet had any intervention besides providing counseling about the risks to them before get married.

It’s the new concern of the second wave that NGOs, development partners, and relevant institutions should take immediate action to prevent the widespread transmission among OVC and their partners. The common messages for counseling should be provided and the action should be taken punctually.
