Limited access to clean water remains a common issue across Vietnam due to several developmental factors, including lack of technical and financial resource support from local governments and private sectors. To address this, USAID's Vietnam Local Works for Environmental Health project collaborated with An Giang provincial authorities to leverage partnerships among local actors to mobilize resources and advocate for a joint activity to improve access to clean water in the province. As a result, the project received official approval from the An Giang Provincial People’s Committee on July 2, and local governmental organizations and the local community have allocated over $200,000 to bring clean water to nearly 1,200 students and teachers and 350 households (approximately 1,400 people) of Phu Tan, Tri Ton and Tinh Bien districts.

USAID’s I-Thrive project supports a pediatric OT room and an interactive playground at the hospital to complement interdisciplinary services, combining physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy.
