HO CHI MINH CITY, August 5, 2014 – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) today launched a two-year project that seeks to improve the community response to the HIV epidemic by strengthening the ability of local organizations to reach most at-risk populations and link them with appropriate HIV services.

The “USAID Community HIV Link-Southern” project, implemented in Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho City and An Giang Province by the Centre for Promotion of Quality of Life (LIFE) with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), has a target of delivering effective community-based HIV/AIDS services to a total 4,000 high risk people (injecting drug users, female sex workers and men who have sex with men) and 2,000 people living with HIV.

USAID is proud to be a partner with the GVN in these important efforts to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. Since 1989, the U.S. Government has provided over $54 million in assistance to people with disabilities, regardless of cause. In collaboration with the GVN and partners such as the Vietnam Assistance to the Handicapped, we have been able to contribute to the development of Vietnam's National Law on Disability, Accessibility Codes and Standards for public transportation, public construction and access to information. In addition, we have been contributing to the establishment of the Blue Ribbon Employer Council that promotes employment for PWDs, the establishment of the National Coordinating Council on Disabilities and the Vietnam Disability Federation to promote enforcement of the disability law and policies.

HANOI -- It is a pleasure to be here with you today for this important workshop. It's a workshop that will provide an opportunity to review and formulate a policy that will improve the economic livelihood of people living with HIV and AIDS, their families, and communities. But first, you will hear about successful strategies for increasing access to credit and working capital so PLHIV and other vulnerable populations can create employment for themselves and others.

HANOI -- It is an honor for me to join people who are so dedicated to making Vietnam a more inclusive society for people with disabilities. The theme of this year’s International Day could not be more important. “Removing barriers” and being more inclusive – those are goals that resonate in every country, including my own. But they mean nothing without leadership in government and in society.
