HANOI, July 27, 2016 -- The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced its new, five-year, $26 million project to strengthen and sustain Vietnam’s HIV and AIDS response.

The Sustainable HIV Response From Technical Assistance (SHIFT) Project, implemented by FHI 360 until 2021, will strengthen Vietnam’s human, organizational, and systems capacity to lead the national HIV and AIDS response.

“The project will scale up services along the entire HIV care continuum from diagnosis  to successful treatment in high HIV burden provinces to achieve “90-90-90” HIV case-finding, care, and treatment targets,” said USAID Vietnam Mission Director Michael Greene, who assumed the post last week. “It will also provide demand-driven technical assistance at the national, provincial and local levels to build sustainable HIV/AIDS services and systems.”
