HISTORIC HEALTH ASSISTANCE OVER PAST 20 YEARS

Over the past 20 years, the United States has invested more than $1 billion in health assistance for Vietnam to increase prevention and control of infectious diseases by building sustainable health systems that support Vietnam’s efforts to plan, finance, and implement solutions. This support includes assistance to help prevent and treat HIV/AIDS (through PEPFAR), TB, and zoonotic diseases. In collaboration with the Government of Vietnam and community based organizations, USAID provides funding and technical support to expand and improve services for the prevention and control of HIV and TB, advance local ownership of HIV and TB prevention and treatment, and strengthen Vietnam’s capacity to control and respond to priority global health threats posed by infectious diseases.
