Since 2008, USAID/Vietnam has worked closely with the Government of
Vietnam and the private sector to help reform the higher education
system to produce trained, job-ready graduates that have the skills
necessary to compete on an increasingly global market. Implementation
of projects under the USAID Higher Education portfolio have already
impacted over 30,000 university students by providing curriculum
support, training, and capacity building at the faculty and administrative
levels in the engineering and social work education sectors. By
The U.S. Agency for International Development Health Policy Initiative (USAID/HPI) has supported Vietnam’s legal framework and trained staff at over 300 local government and community institutions over a five-year period to more effectively engage in policy dialogue and advocate for better services for people at risk or living with HIV.
We have come a long way. USAID began supporting HIV/AIDS programs in Vietnam in the mid-1990s. USAID and its U.S. Government partner agencies work in collaboration with and through the Government of Vietnam at the national, provincial, and district levels in support of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. USAID supports delivery prevention, care and treatment services, and advocacy for policies that will improve access to and the quality of HIV/AIDS services.
Key training and demonstration models have reached thousands of human and animal health workers and poultry farmers across Vietnam to help detect and control disease as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development's Avian and Pandemic Influenza Initiative (USAID/APII).
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today met with 140 representatives of primarily Vietnamese nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Hanoi to expand partnerships through a new grant program.
