Animal Health Information Systems provide an efficient way to share disease information among farms, villages, communes, districts, provinces, central veterinary offices, laboratories, and other national stakeholders. These systems play an important role in strengthening the country’s public health surveillance system and enabling rapid response to disease outbreaks; minimizing health threats and economic loss; and building public trust in livestock products for both domestic and global consumers.

Social health insurance (SHI), the Vietnamese Government’s primary domestic resource for sustainable HIV treatment, will cost $33 per person for annual SHI enrollment and approximately $150 copayment fees for one year of initial antiretroviral therapy (ART). This is a big financial burden for many poor people living with HIV (PLHIV), especially in rural or mountainous areas, such as Lao Cai province. To help solve this challenge, USAID’s Sustainable HIV Response from Technical Assistance (SHIFT) activity recently worked with the Lao Cai Provincial AIDS Center and Department of Health to develop a financial sustainability plan for HIV/AIDS treatment, which includes local funding from the Provincial People’s Committee to cover SHI premium and copayment fees.
