National Technical Working Group meeting on discussing the draft Standard Operating Procedure in implementing HIV case reporting according to Circular 09/2012/TT-BYT

For the purposes of discussion and receiving feedback for the draft Technical Guideline Standard Operating Procedure for implementing HIV case reporting according to Circular 09/2012/TT-BYT via cooperation between the CCRD and Vietnam Administration of HIV/AIDS Control (VAAC), VAAC organized a Technical Working Group meeting participated in by the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE), leaders and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) staff of 3 provinces: Kien Giang, Nghe An, Dien Bien, and Representatives of organizations CDC, UNAIDS, FHI360 and WHO on February 6th, 2018.  According to VAAC, the purpose of enacting Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to give specific instruction to provinces/cities in order to implement HIV case reporting homogeneously and effectively to strive for 90-90-90 targets.

During the implementation process of Circular 09/2012/TT-BYT of the Ministry of Health on guiding epidemiological surveillance of HIV/AIDS and sexual transmission infections, many provinces, cities, districts, and communes face difficulties and heterogeneity in enactment. The main reason for this is that there is no detailed instructional document to support these areas for case reporting verification implementation according to regulation in the Circular.

Based on successful experiences in both Nghe An and Dien Bien provinces, the CCRD supported VAAC by adding some components to the regulation on HIV case reporting and HIV case verification in the Circular.

Representatives from the provinces and organizations highly appreciated the efforts of the CCRD and VAAC in developing and creating this important SOP. The meeting received many positive comments from participants.

At the end of the meeting, PhD. Pham Duc Manh - Deputy Director of VAAC concluded that VAAC would be the authority to be responsible for modifying and completing this document to ensure high practicality, meet the requirements of the program, and follow the enacted legal document. The draft “Standard Operating Procedure” was modified after the meeting which would be sent to provinces and cities to get final comments before being enacted and implemented synchronously.
