Demands for occupational therapy (OT) and speech therapy (ST) are growing in Vietnam. However, services are limited due to the lack of trained therapists and enabling regulations. At present, just a few dozen out of several hundred rehabilitation therapies are nationally approved for practice within the nationwide health care system. USAID’s Disability Rights Enforcement, Coordination, and Therapies (DIRECT) project over the past two years has been providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH) to strengthen enabling regulations and build the capacity of service providers in order to expand OT and ST services. As a result, the MOH in a decision released in mid September 2021, approved and added 88 new OT and ST services into the nationally approved health service list. As a next step, USAID DIRECT will continue technical support to MOH to develop detailed technical procedures and cost breakdowns for each of the above services in order to guide service delivery and billing, including payment through health insurance.
