(Promulgated together with the Prime Minister’s Decision No. 1246/QD-TTg

Part I

CONTEXT OF PROMULGATION OF THE STRATEGY

HIV/AIDS constitutes an important community well-being issue, affecting socio-economic development and national development. By June 2020, Vietnam has around 250,000 HIV-infected persons recorded in 100% of provinces and centrally cities and 98% of districts, of whom more than 100,000  have died.

Vietnam has so far promulgated many important documents aiming to control the increase of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, including the National Strategy for Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS in Vietnam up to 2020, with a vision toward 2030, issued together with the Prime Minister’s Decision No. 608/QD-TTg of May 25, 2012. Over the past time, ministries, sectors, Party Committees and administrations at all levels have proactively led and directed the implementation of the Strategy and gained numerous achievements. HIV transmission prevention measures have been widely applied, such as providing needles, syringes and condoms to high-risk behavior groups; providing opiate substitution treatment; providing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) treatment; and conducting public communication to change behaviors and reduce stigma and discrimination concerning HIV/AIDS. Types of facility-based HIV testing, community-based HIV testing and HIV self-testing have been expanded and diversified. HIV/AIDS treatment services have been expanded in terms of coverage and improved in terms of quality, persons found to be HIV-infected have been provided with immediate treatment; the HIV/AIDS treatment networks have been integrated and decentralized; the coverage of mother-to-child HIV transmission prevention treatment services has been expanded, and the quality of HIV/AIDS treatment has been guaranteed. As a result, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has been step by step controlled, the numbers of new HIV infections and new AIDS cases and HIV/AIDS-related deaths have been constantly declined year by year, the target of keeping the HIV prevalence in the community at below 0.3% in 2020 has been attained. It is estimated that over the past 20 years, precautionary treatment has been provided to prevent more than 400,000 persons from being infected with HIV and 150,000 persons from dying of AIDS. Vietnam is evaluated by the world community as a bright spot in HIV/AIDS prevention and control and has basically fulfilled objectives and tasks set forth in the Strategy.
