Strengthening Sustainability of High Quality HIV Pre-Service Training in Hai Phong and of Integrated Supervision for HIV Care and Treatment in Viet Nam
Funded by CDC/PEPFAR, through a subagreement with FHI 360, Pathfinder provided technical support to the Hai Phong Medical University to design a blended (online learning and face-to-face teaching) curriculum on palliative care, methadone maintenance therapy, and antiretroviral therapy for practicing health care workers. The project also supported the Ministry of Health to develop guidelines for continuing medical education in HIV/AIDS to be applied nationwide.
The project was successfully completed and the Hai Phong Medical University and the Ministry of Health are discussing scale up of the Pathfinder’s training curricula and HIV/AIDS training methods nationwide.
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.
This paper offers a critical overview of social science research presented at the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia.
With funding from the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health, Pathfinder has begun a new project to test the effectiveness of a mobile phone-based continuing medical education strategy among Vietnamese community-based physician assistants.
