Persons with disabilities, especially those with brain lesions (such as children with cerebral palsy) often face complex communication needs as they are unable to speak or have limited verbal communication ability. These individuals benefit from Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, which are increasingly accessed through digital technologies and mobile applications. To introduce AAC technology to Vietnam, USAID's Advancing Medical Care and Rehabilitation Education project supported the translation and contextualization of two AAC apps, Talk Tablet VN and AlphaTopics. Talk Tablet VN is an application that allows the user to form sentences using symbols that are then read out loud by the tablet. AlphaTopics is an application used to facilitate communication for people who have difficulty enunciating. Both apps are scheduled to be available in Vietnamese for Android devices by this May.

Specialized inspection (SI) is a customs clearance procedure in Vietnam implemented by line ministries on import and export of goods. Currently, overlapping specialized inspections by different ministries consume 70% of clearance time, causing unnecessary delay in customs clearance. As USAID is helping Vietnam simplify this process, last week, our USAID Trade Facilitation Program supported the General Department of Vietnam Customs (GDVC) to organise two consultative workshops to gather public comments on a draft SI decree, a policy that would regulate state management of quality control and food safety of imported goods.

In Thong Nhat district, 100 km from the capital city of Bien Hoa in Dong Nai province, key population members at risk of HIV, many of them factory workers with long hours, face barriers to access HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Because none of the health clinics in the district provide PrEP services, USAID’s Healthy Markets project supported Glink Dong Nai, a key population-led HIV services organization, together with Dong Nai Center for Disease Control and the Thong Nhat district health center, to implement the third “PrEP on Wheels” day, a mobile service to bring HIV testing and health care to patients.
