HANOI, November 25, 2015 -- Today, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that Bedaquiline, the first new medication to fight drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) in over 40 years, is now available in Vietnam through its partnership with Janssen Therapeutics of Johnson & Johnson. This innovative partnership is a significant step forward in the global fight against the growing health threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Tuberculosis remains one of the most common communicable diseases in Vietnam with 130,000 new cases found and 17,000 deaths every year. As the public health burden of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is also prevalent, Vietnam is among the first countries in the world receiving the Bedaquiline donation to support its continuing efforts to fight the disease.

It is an exciting time as 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the normalization of U.S.-Vietnam diplomatic relations.

The anniversary is an opportunity to take stock in how far this relationship has come and how much it has benefited the people from our countries. Over the past 20 years, our bilateral trade has grown from only $450 million to over $35 million annually in 2014. Over approximately the same time period the people of Vietnam have reduced their country’s poverty level from nearly 60 percent in the 1990s to 17 percent in 2012.
