In Viet Nam, FHI 360 works with the country’s government and local partners to develop sustainable solutions to health, environment and development challenges.
Through the U.S. Agency for International Development Support to End Tuberculosis project, we are working with the National Tuberculosis Program to strengthen service delivery platforms, increase access to services and molecular diagnostic testing, and advance local ownership. The introduction and scale-up of innovative screening approaches and new tools, including an updated surveillance system and the use of artificial intelligence for chest X-ray interpretation, is advancing Viet Nam’s goal of ending tuberculosis by 2030.
FHI 360 is helping the government of Viet Nam’s efforts to control the HIV epidemic by strengthening HIV health care systems through the Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project, which supports government and community leaders in delivering HIV services, develops health information systems, and helps create innovative financing models. To improve the overall resilience of the health care system, EpiC is providing liquid oxygen systems to hospitals and supporting mental health services for health care workers in Viet Nam.
Through the Fleming Fund country grant in Viet Nam, with funding from the U.K. Department of Health and Social Care, FHI 360 is promoting the One Health approach to strengthen antimicrobial resistance surveillance systems in the human and animal health sectors.
FHI 360 also supports Viet Nam’s efforts to prevent and control noncommunicable diseases (NCD) by working to standardize medical education, improve the digital health ecosystem, pilot an NCD intervention model in communities and strengthen NCD surveillance systems.
Outside the health sector, FHI 360’s Environment and Climate Change initiative is designing, delivering and scaling solutions for environment challenges and climate change. FHI 360 is also working with the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to strengthen support to victims of human trafficking.
