In order to increase effective leadership drive against the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Vietnam, UNAIDS Vietnam invited the Center for Community Health Research Development (CCRD) as consultant to conduct (1) rapid desk review of relevant HIV/AIDS documents, (2) interviews with agencies working on HIV/AIDS to map key individuals, political structures, government agencies and their influences. CCRD suggested strategies for influencing leadership and identified key opportunities for leadership movement around HIV/AIDS in Vietnam.
The directive 52-CT/TW expresses timely attention and direction of the Party and the State in response to HIV/AIDS epidemic. It does not only create an important political foundation for developing legal documents of HIV/AIDS prevention and control but also create a foundation for community mobilization in the response to HIV/AIDS prevention and control. The evaluation of the achievements made from nine-year implementation of the Directive as well as identification of obstacles and causes in order to draw lessons learnt are very necessary. This research was implemented in December, 2004.
The purpose of the study was to better understand the HIV/AIDS situation among the group of young people living in Lao Cai. The specific objectives contained (1) to assess knowledge, attitudes, practices and health behaviors (KAPB) regarding HIV/AIDS among the youth group at high risk; (2) to identify factors elevating the risk of HIV/AIDS among the youth; (3) to identify protective factors and preventive measures for HIV/AIDS among this population.This research was conducted in August, 2005.

CCRD’s mission is to contribute to the improvement and equity of health care and social advancement for the Vietnamese people through a systematic and sustainable approach that combines sound knowledge, cultural sensitivity and capacity building.
