The end-of-first period review conference of the “USAID Community HIV Link - Northern” project over the period of 2014-2017 in Dien Bien

On May 12th, 2016, CCRD collaborated with the Dien Bien Department of Health and Dien Bien Provincial HIV/AIDS Center to successfully organize a review conference for the “Community HIV Link- Northern Mountains” project from November 2014 to May 2017 and introduced the next period of the project (2017-2022) in Dien Bien Phu city, Dien Bien province. The conference had participation and direct guidance from the Mission Director of USAID, leadership from the Vietnam Administration of HIV/AIDS Control, Ministry of Health, Provincial People’s Committee and the Director of Dien Bien Provincial Department of Health.

The leader of the Dien Bien Provincial HIV/AIDS Center presented results of the project in the first period at the conference. Over nearly 3 years, the project contributed to general results in the province with 85% of newly detected cases (780 cases) and 79% of new treatment cases (927 cases) which helped the province nearly achieve the 90-90-90 targets. Besides, the project supported the province to build the strong community – based organizations who had the capacity to deliver effective, sustainable and quality service.

Furthermore, the leader of the Center for Community Health Research and Development (CCRD) briefly introduced the next period of the project from 2017 to 2022 funded by USAID.

At the end of the conference, the Dien Bien Provincial People’s Committee and the Dien Bien Provincial Department of Health committed to continue closely coordinating and actively implementing project initiatives to achieve the 90-90-90 targets by early 2020 and end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
