HIV case verification in Dien Bien and Nghe An

Within the “HIV/AIDS Strategic Information System Strengthening” project, CCRD implemented HIV case verification in Dien Bien (from March 1st to July 31st , 2016) and Nghe An (from June 1st to December 31st , 2016).

The case verification process in both provinces was conducted with collaboration from Department of Health and Provincial HIV/AIDS Center of both province. As a result, 100% of HIV cases detected in these province from previous years up to June 30th, 2016 (total of 9000 cases in Nghe An and 7000 cases in Dien Bien) were fully verified at grass root level reconciled with treatment records at outpatient clinics (OPC). Verified cases were updated in provincial and consistently recorded across all levels.

Up to now, Nghe An and Dien Bien are two of very few provinces in the country that have accurate, systematic and standardized data sources to measure the 90-90-90 targets.
