Hence, USAID’s Sustainable HIV Response From Technical Assistance project launched an intensified HIV case finding approach coupled with an updated performance-based incentive system in Hanoi in May in order to increase site-based  case-finding results. With deployment of the new strategy and weekly data monitoring, USAID found more than twice the number of HIV positive people in quarter three compared to quarter two (from 56 individuals to 134 individuals) and increased the number of people on treatment by 1.8 times (from 167 individuals to 300 individuals).

Revamping training and development is a central feature of this strategy, which will incorporate e-learning and training simulators to build the capacity of GDVC staff and help modernization of customs sector.
