Community participation in HIV/AIDS fight enhanced
VGP – The PM has approved a project to enhance the participation of social and community organizations in HIV/AIDS prevention and control, which is sponsored by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The project is aimed at providing prevention services to reduce HIV transmission among drug addicts, prostitutes and homosexuals as well as consolidating the community system to facilitate effective and sustainable participation in HIV/AIDS prevention and control activities.
Besides, the project will create a favorable legal environment for main groups to get access to HIV/AIDS prevention and control services and enhance the participation of social and community organizations in fighting against HIV/AIDS in Viet Nam.
Launched from 2015-2017, the project is financed through a non-refundable aid of nearly US$7 million.
