Vietnam is graduating to middle-income status and transitioning away from a reliance on international donor funding for public health interventions. Using evidence to prioritize HIV/AIDS prevention interventions and allocate funding becomes more important. USAID/HPI and FHI360/Vietnam assisted the Government of Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMc) to:

  • Develop an epidemiologic HIV/AIDS projection for HCMc based on available behavioral, epidemiologic, and program intervention coverage data;
  • Estimate resource needs based on alternate program coverage scenarios;
  • Identify the most effective combinations of interventions based on projections of intervention impact; and
  • Develop recommendations for resource mobilization in order to fill resource gaps and ensure the sustainability of the HIV/AIDS prevention program.
