Audit of USAID/Vietnam’s Social Marketing Prevention and Supportive Services in Vietnam Program.
Country: Viet Nam
Fiscal Year: 2011
Audit Report Available: Yes
UNAIDS estimates that adult HIV prevalence for injecting drug users in Vietnam is between 23.1 and 70 percent, depending on the province. Additionally, almost 80 percent of Vietnam’s reported AIDS cases affect men between the ages of 20 and 39.
To address the problem of widespread infection of young Vietnamese men through tainted drug injections, and to support the U.S. Government’s PEPFAR strategy in Vietnam, USAID signed a 5-year, $15.5 million task order with Population Services International to implement the Social Marketing Prevention and Supportive Services in Vietnam Program.
The program aims to expand and strengthen HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and support services in Vietnam. More specifically, the program’s goal is to reduce HIV prevalence among the most-at-risk populations through promoting commodities and services, increasing safer behavior practices, and reducing the initiation of drug use among core transmitters and vulnerable populations in Vietnam.
This audit will determine whether USAID’s Social Marketing Prevention and Supportive Services Program is expanding and strengthening HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and support services to reduce HIV prevalence in Vietman.
