WHO Praises Viet Nam's Initiatives in Fighting HIV/AIDS

A high-level delegation of the World Health Organisation (WHO) will come to Viet Nam to learn the country's initiatives to control HIV/AIDS and address important challenges ahead.

Dr. Kevin De Cock, Director of the WHO's HIV/AIDS Department, is expected to meet with Vietnamese government officials, donors and partner agencies in Ha Noi next week.

The two sides will discuss ways to strengthen and advocate the health sector's response to HIV/AIDS and WHO-government collaboration specifically in the areas of harm reduction, care and treatment, and monitoring and evaluation of the response.

WHO Representative in Viet Nam, Dr. Hans Troedsson, said that the health sector in Viet Nam has prepared itself for fighting HIV/AIDS and now has a substantial potential for success.
