Sustaining Vietnam’s HIV and AIDS Programs

People living with HIV and AIDS in Vietnam now have greater access to antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) than ever before. This access to care is largely the result of financial and in-kind contributions from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEFAR) and The Global Fund which together have worked with the Government of Vietnam to cover 95% of the costs of ARVs ($21.2 million in 2014).

But due to projected declines in donor funds in the next three to five years, there is a pressing need for the government to transition to more sustainable forms of financing to ensure this coverage continues.
