The United States is proud to support Vietnam’s leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. PEPFAR provides targeted assistance to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of the national response to HIV/AIDS in collaboration with the Government of Vietnam and other development partners.

As the Government of Vietnam increases its domestic monetary and programmatic investments, PEPFAR is aligning its investments with national priorities to ensure high-quality HIV services are integrated into the general health and social services systems. Specific priorities include the following:

  • Improving the quality and coverage of HIV services, including treatment retention, with a focus on key and vulnerable populations
  • Enhancing the cost-effectiveness of programs and building affordable models of care to increase domestic financing
  • Supporting the development of national policies and institutions to improve program quality and sustainability, including through investments in HIV/AIDS-related surveillance and strategic information, human resources for health, laboratory systems strengthening, and civil society engagement
