Mobile phone technology could be an effective means to promote improved health practices among Cambodia’s female entertainment workers and help curb the spread of HIV, according to a new study conducted by the organisation KHANA and the Center for Global Health Research at Touro University in California.
The ubiquity of mobile phones in Cambodia makes it increasingly easy for health-related
texts and voice messages to reach at-risk populations, the study found. In 2015, the
number of mobile phones in Cambodia exceeded the country’s population by about 6 million.
