USAID/Vietnam works with the Government of Vietnam to help strengthen the country’s transition to a market-driven economy. At the Government of Vietnam’s (GVN’s) request, USAID carries out activities to support an enhanced business environment through legal and regulatory reform, competitiveness, intellectual property rights protection, infrastructure financing, and agricultural development.
We have come a long way. USAID began supporting HIV/AIDS programs in Vietnam in the mid-1990s. USAID and its U.S. Government partner agencies work in collaboration with and through the Government of Vietnam at the national, provincial, and district levels in support of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. USAID supports delivery prevention, care and treatment services, and advocacy for policies that will improve access to and the quality of HIV/AIDS services.
The U.S. Agency for International Development Health Policy Initiative (USAID/HPI) has supported Vietnam’s legal framework and trained staff at over 300 local government and community institutions over a five-year period to more effectively engage in policy dialogue and advocate for better services for people at risk or living with HIV.
Key training and demonstration models have reached thousands of human and animal health workers and poultry farmers across Vietnam to help detect and control disease as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development's Avian and Pandemic Influenza Initiative (USAID/APII).
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today met with 140 representatives of primarily Vietnamese nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Hanoi to expand partnerships through a new grant program.
