March 18, 2014 2:09 PM GMT+7

VGP - The Viet Nam Administration of HIV / AIDS Control (VAAC), under the Ministry of Health, has published two model documents on health insurance for HIV-infected people.

The communication materials are sponsored through financial and technical assistance by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS.

This is a move that looks to increase the number of HIV-positive people having their treatment covered by insurance.

The documents will assist HIV carriers in having access to the health insurance system and encourage organizations and agencies to provide health insurance cards for people living with HIV.
