Vietnam Facing HIV/AIDS Funding Challenges as Donors Pull Back
July 24, 2013
Devex examines how Vietnam, now considered a middle-income country, is facing the challenge of securing funding for its HIV/AIDS programs, as donors begin to "either reduc[e] their aid footprints or cu[t] altogether their bilateral ties." The news service writes, "On the ground, implementing partners from civil society and non-profit circles are forging new bonds with corporations, other big non-profits and private foundations to secure future funding. Some are even relying on special assistance from their headquarters to continue their operations." However, "declining funding does not mean donors are abandoning Vietnam. As their funding is expected to dry up in the coming years, donors are now trying to help the Vietnam government to lead the fight against the global scourge," according to Devex, which discusses funding from the U.S., U.K., Australia, the Netherlands, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Morales, 7/23).
