Support for persons with disabilities from a peer who has been in a similar situation can be more powerful than non-disabled professionals’ interventions. This can be true for helping to understand one’s situation, assuming responsibility for one’s life, and in developing coping strategies, and can also help persons with disabilities learn to take more initiative and control over their lives. Between June 4-6, 2022, USAID’s INCLUSION-I Project conducted a survey among persons with disabilities in Quang Tri province to assess their need related to independent living skills.

Vietnam launched the National Public Service Portal (NPSP), a single sign-on portal for all public services, in late 2019, marking a major milestone in its E-government development efforts. Although NPSP plays a vital role in the digitization of public services, its operation needs to be significantly improved to accelerate the uptake rate and meet   the country’s ambitious targets for digitizing all public services by 2030. To support Vietnam in this challenging task, USAID, in partnership with the Administrative Procedure Control Agency under the Office of the Government, is conducting a series of trainings in May and June for provincial government officials nationwide on steps to digitize, synchronize and integrate provincial government services into the NPSP and monitor the process using data analytics tools.
