Reaching Hard-to-Reach Populations with Health Information: mHealth in Viet Nam
With a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, Pathfinder implemented a one-year pilot project to target ethnic minority populations in the Central Highlands and Northern Mountains regions of Viet Nam with health messages. The education messages were delivered to beneficiaries through text messages and interactive voice response systems. The project was able to reach a large number of targeted individuals with culturally sensitive messages in three local languages. The project, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, attracted great attention from several local partners, including the MOH. As proof of its success, PEPFAR/USAID has granted Pathfinder a small grant to expand the project approach to reach two most-at-risk populations: intravenous drug users and men who have sex with men.
Pathfinder is enhancing the health management information system in Viet Nam in order to strengthen the health sector's planning and management and to reduce inequities among poor and vulnerable populations.
Improving Health Care for Ethnic Minority Populations through Pre-Service Training in Viet Nam: A Systems-Based Approach
This project improved access to high quality, culturally appropriate health care in mountainous and underserved areas where many ethnic minorities live by partnering with medical schools in Viet Nam.
In Viet Nam, Pathfinder taught young people about HIV prevention and provided other life skills-based training to improve sexual and reproductive health among 15-24-year-olds.
