Context: Viet Nam has made significant progress in recent years responding to the country’s HIV epidemic. As the country’s capacity to address the HIV epidemic has been strengthened, and the economy grows stronger, increasing emphasis is being placed on transitioning the national HIV strategy to a sustained, country-led response. Stakeholders and planners in Viet Nam need a tool that provides fast and comprehensive data for intervention planning and decision-making.

Approach: The tool was developed and refined through a series of two design studios with Hai Phong stakeholders in 2014, including representatives from the Hai Phong Department of Health, Department of Labor Invalids and Social Affairs (DOLISA), Department of Planning and Investment (DOPI), Department of Internal Affairs (DOIA), Department of Finance (DOF), Provincial AIDS Committee (PAC), community-based organization (CBOs); the Vietnam Administration of HIV/AIDS Control (VAAC), PEPFAR implementing partners, and representatives of key populations.

Conclusion: LMG-TSP supported the development of a powerful planning tool in Hai Phong that puts data for decision-making into the hands of stakeholders. The global Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) project will continue to be available to Hai Phong stakeholders, the Government of Viet Nam and PEPFAR for national scale up and to provide technical support for the implementation of this powerful tool.
