Cambodia has made some remarkable progress in halting the country's HIV epidemic. However, that's where the good news ends, according to a recent UN report.

The report has found that more than half of Cambodians living with HIV were hungry and lacked adequate food supplies last year, compared to just over one third of those not affected by HIV.

'The Socioeconomic Impact of HIV' also found that 27 percent of those living with HIV lost their jobs after being diagnosed with the virus.

Anthony Lisle, the head of UNAIDS Cambodia, explains the findings of the report.
