In the past few years, Hai Phong, one of the most important economic centers in Vietnam, has lost its momentum in growth and competitiveness. In its latest Resolution, the Hai Phong Government determined that digitalization will be a driving force and a focus of the city's development for the next five years. The To Hieu Political School of Hai Phong City plays a central role in awareness-raising and capacity building for senior provincial officers. On June 8, 2022, USAID Vietnam Leads organized a training workshop to provide local leaders with evidence-based analyses and recommendations for crafting digitalization policies and solutions.

On June 14, USAID and partners celebrated the completion of the eight-year, $20.7 million USAID/PATH Healthy Markets project and launched the new, five-year, $15 million USAID/PATH STEPS project. From 2014 to 2021, Healthy Markets addressed critical gaps in accessible, affordable, community-based HIV care while strengthening the domestic market for HIV-related goods and services. An example was the project’s support for the introduction and scale-up of HIV community-based testing, self-testing, and pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP (an oral pill that prevents HIV infection when taken as prescribed)—three key services that contributed to a 57 percent reduction in new HIV infections over the past decade.
