  4. The sexual or drug-injecting partners of those who have HIV are among those at the highest risk of infection. The USAID/PATH Healthy Markets project works with community-based testing providers in Vietnam to support people newly diagnosed with HIV to inform their partners and enable them to get tested too. This results in a high rate of new case detection, when compared to community-based testing approaches as a whole, and conventional HIV testing services in Vietnam.

  5. PATH has been a trusted partner to Vietnam’s Ministry of Health for four decades. We’ve supported its work to expand sexual, reproductive, maternal, and child health services, and to address infectious and vaccine-preventable diseases. Today, as rapid social and economic changes transform Vietnam, we are leveraging our thought leadership with the government, the private sector, civil-society organizations, and social entrepreneurs to advance equitable access to good health. Specific efforts include developing sustainable responses to diseases like HIV and tuberculosis (TB); supporting local stakeholders to develop their own health solutions, like domestically produced vaccines; and acting quickly to address new and emerging health threats, such as non-communicable diseases, hospital infections, drug resistance, and environmental dangers.

  10. PATH, with support from UNICEF, is working to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate health care waste management models in two pilot townships in Myanmar. Improper health care waste management, including the unsafe disposal of used syringes and needles, can increase the likelihood of accidents among health workers. PATH trained health staff on good immunization waste management practices, introduced needle and hub cutters for health staff—devices used to separate the potentially infectious needle from the syringe body, and assigned and constructed safe disposal sites for sharps and infectious waste.These validated health care waste management models will help the Myanmar Ministry of Health Sports and Occupational and Environmental Health Division to minimize the environmental, occupational, and community health risks from health care waste generated at health facilities and by community-based midwives.
