Given the projected decline in donor funding for HIV/AIDS and TB programs, many countries are faced with the reality of integrating these programs completely into national budgets while at the same time, planning for scaling up these programs. The Government of Vietnam is moving towards a government-led, centralized procurement and supply chain management system for antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), methadone, and anti-TB drugs with support from USAID/Vietnam and the HFG Project.
To inform this process, HFG evaluated the current state of procurement and distribution systems for HIV/AIDS and TB supplies, and identified recommendations for a successful transition from donors, such as PEPFAR and the Global Fund, to the Government. The report, “Options for Integrating Procurement and Supply Chain Systems for ARVs, Methadone, and anti-Tuberculosis Drugs in Vietnam,” also proposes activities for development partners that can be deployed in the immediate, short, medium, and long terms.Download
