USAID Improves the Capacity of Health and Social Workers in Vietnam

Friday, March 20, 2020

USAID’s Access for All project supports persons with disabilities organizations’ advocacy efforts to improve accessibility needs; raises awareness for physical accessibility in provinces; and promotes understanding of disability rights for local governments and among persons with disabilities. On March 17-18, the project organized a training for 40 health and social workers (12 male, 28 female) at Ben Tre Hospital in southern Vietnam, that serves a population of nearly 1.3 million people, including over 26,000 persons with disabilities. The training enhanced the participants’ knowledge on disabilities and their social work skills to support their daily work at the provincial hospital.

So What: Increasing capacity of health workers and social workers and building the foundation for a disability-friendly environment will help persons with disabilities improve their quality of life, participate in society, and lead normal lives.
