HO CHI MINH CITY, August 21, 2015 - The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today launched a Healthy Markets Innovation Fund – an initiative to identify and invest in innovative social enterprise ideas for HIV-related commodities and services in Vietnam.

The Innovation Fund is aimed at increasing the demand and supply of HIV goods and services. Implemented through USAID’s Healthy Markets project, the competition is open to teams from social enterprises, nonprofit organizations and businesses in Vietnam. Winners will be selected by a panel of HIV and social impact experts, and will receive financial and in-kind support, such as business mentoring and technical assistance for implementation.
“In the coming years, as Vietnam looks for novel ways of sustaining the HIV response, it will need to reach out to new partners and find new methods of providing goods and services,” said U.S. Consul General Rena Bitter. “The Healthy Markets Innovation Fund is a new exciting opportunity to engage and support private sector and community entrepreneurs with enterprising ideas that can contribute to the HIV response.”
