20 July 2018 - Stigma and discrimination (S&D) present formidable barriers to key populations accessing HIV testing and treatment in Vietnam. On July 3, USAID SHIFT joinedDong Nai Department of Health and the Vietnam Administration for HIV/AIDS Control to train staff from major health facilities to meet a recent Ministry of Health directive on reducing HIV S&D. The trainees now understand the impact of their attitudes and behaviors on HIV service uptake, retention and epidemic control, and have committed to treating those at risk of or living with HIV in Dong Nai with dignity and respect.
