Vietnam country quote - may 2024

Vietnam now has 90 percent of HIV patients enrolled in Social Health Insurance. SHI funds are now used to procure anti-retroviral drugs, the most expensive component of an HIV response.

Expanding Our Impact

Abt’s work in Vietnam has helped boost women’s economic empowerment, strengthen government capacity for HIV and TB prevention, address climate change, and promote clean energy solutions. The Investing in Women project established the Vietnam Business Coalition for Women Empowerment to support workplace gender equality through policy advisories, employee trainings and surveys, and positive gender norms. 

Through the USAID-funded Local Health System Sustainability (LHSS) project, Abt has supported the Government of Vietnam to strengthen its capacity to finance and manage health programs and update policy and legal frameworks to transition HIV and TB programs from external donors to nationally managed social health insurance. This marks a critical milestone for Vietnam in its shift to sustainable financing for HIV and TB, ensuring uninterrupted access to life-saving treatment. Abt is also helping Vietnam to pilot a social contracting mechanism for community-based delivery of HIV services.

The Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment, and Resilience (CEADIR) project helped accelerate private sector investments for climate change mitigation in agriculture, forestry, and land use in Vietnam. As a part of the AgResults initiative in Vietnam, Abt conducted a rigorous impact evaluation of a pay-for-results challenge project designed to promote adoption of low-emissions rice production technologies.
