Over the past 25 years, Viet Nam has rapidly scaled up HIV services and made significant progress in preventing new infections and reducing AIDS-related deaths. These achievements have been made through the combination of strong Government leadership across multiple sectors, the participation of affected communities and civil society, and an effective collaboration between the Government of Viet Nam and international development partners. However, HIV prevention and HIV testing coverage for key populations – people who inject drugs, sex workers and men who have sex with men – is still far below the level required to contain the epidemic, and tens of thousands of people living with HIV are in need of HIV treatment.

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) was established in 1996 as the global leader of the response to HIV. UNAIDS leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. UNAIDS unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations—UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank—and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
