Publication of Situational Analysis Report on Persons with Autism in Cambodia

On 27 May 2022, the Disability Action Council Secretariat General (DAC-SG) published a Situational Analysis Report on Persons with Autism in Cambodia.

The report was supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (#ACCESS) Program and provides a comprehensive analysis of the situation persons with autism and their families face in Cambodia. It also includes recommendations for improving support services, including education, rehabilitation and vocational training. This report will be the foundation for the development of an action plan to address the needs of persons with autism in Cambodia.

The Australian Embassy would like to thank H.E. Em Chan Makara, Secretary of State of MoSVY Cambodia and Secretary General of the DAC-SG, as well as Dr. Richard Rose from the University of Northampton, for leading this vital research. We look forward to supporting the advancement of the report’s recommendations.
