Our Strategy


This strategic planning document has been developed by CHEC staff members, the management team and key stakeholders, for the period 2010 - 2013. It is inclusive of the outcomes of workshops facilitated by Dr. Meas Nee, a freelance Consultant, from 22nd to 24th September 2009, at the National Pediatric Hospital, Phnom Penh, and from 4th to 6th November 2009 the Seaside Hotel, Preah Sihanouk Province. Mrs. Vanessa Read, a freelance Consultant, assisted in reviewing and editing the full text of the Strategic Planning report. The ultimate aim of these strategic planning workshops was to provide an opportunity for key stakeholders, and staff at all levels, to participate and reflect on the successes and constraints experienced by the organization. A SWOT analysis process was also conducted, to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, for both the organization, and its work in the community.  The process of the strategic planning workshops allowed the participants to work together to formulate key strategic directions, which will be used as a basis for CHEC operations over the next 3 years (2010 - 2013) 


After a protracted civil war and the extraordinary brutality and violence of the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s, Cambodia is on the road to recovery. Cambodia’s economic and social development focuses on achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. The Royal Government of Cambodia has customised these goals to the Cambodian context, renaming them the Cambodian Millennium Development Goals. To achieve these goals, the Royal Government of Cambodia has established many initiatives, including a Rectangular Strategy (Phase II) and an (updated) National Strategic Development Plan (2009-2013). The Rectangular Strategy for growth, employment, equity and efficiency aims to promote economic growth, generate employment for Cambodian workers, ensure equity and social justice, and enhance efficiency of the public sector. The National Strategic Development Plan, updated for 2009-2013, outlines the actions, programs and projects that ministries and agencies of the Royal Government of Cambodia will carry out during the Fourth Legislature (2008-2013) of the National Assembly to implement key policy priorities as laid out in Rectangular Strategy Phase II.


This document is the sixth strategic plan for CHEC, representing its sixth cycle of positive intervention in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS and their families.  The CHEC programme currently consists of four projects: the Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Project, Out of School Youth Project, Home-Based Care Project and Nutrition project.


It is the seventh strategic plan since we started our organization in 2001. This strategic plan sets forth CHEC’s roadmap for advancing our goals of employing strategies that promote equal rights and full engagement in the decision-making processes of our target groups in the target areas. We believe that our intervention in the next three years will contribute to the socio-economic development of Cambodia: in particular, to those laws and government regulations related to the three thematic areas of health and governance, gender-based violence and youth’s engagement. Similarly, CHEC’s work will contribute to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG 3 on health and well-being, SDG 4 on quality education, and SDG 5 on gender equality. More importantly, this strategic plan is the pioneering initiative in which CHEC will advocate for the integration of HIV/AIDS, gender-based violence and youth’s empowerment into the community investment fund and community development plan. Also, mainstreaming reproductive rights and HIV/AIDS will be included in our youth and GBV projects.
