Vietnam has made significant progress in recent years responding to the country’s HIV & AIDS epidemic. Under the ongoing leadership of the Government of Vietnam (also known as Viet Nam), the international community has provided significant technical and financial support to the HIV & AIDS program. As country leadership and capacity to address the HIV epidemic has been strengthened, and as Vietnam’s economy grows stronger, increasing emphasis is being placed on transitioning to a sustained country-led response.
This includes strengthening the health system and civil society, particularly to reach those most at risk.
