The innovative model focuses on the countries with high burdens of TB, including Vietnam. FY18 was the first year of TB funding for USAID/Vietnam. Since then, USAID Vietnam has been providing comprehensive support to the NTP to achieve the committed goal of ending TB by 2030 in Vietnam. Technical assistance has been provided to the NTP to improve TB and MDR-TB detection, treatment, and prevention, and to leverage in-country sustainable resources for TB services.
