PATH has been a trusted partner to Vietnam’s Ministry of Health for four decades. We’ve supported its work to expand sexual, reproductive, maternal, and child health services, and to address infectious and vaccine-preventable diseases. Today, as rapid social and economic changes transform Vietnam, we are leveraging our thought leadership with the government, the private sector, civil-society organizations, and social entrepreneurs to advance equitable access to good health. Specific efforts include developing sustainable responses to diseases like HIV and tuberculosis (TB); supporting local stakeholders to develop their own health solutions, like domestically produced vaccines; and acting quickly to address new and emerging health threats, such as non-communicable diseases, hospital infections, drug resistance, and environmental dangers.
