This IM will be used to fund several activities that relate to CDC Vietnam’s ongoing operations from headquarters in: 1) supporting technical assistance and management training to university and academic institutions; 2) development of training and guided field experience in surveillance and epidemiology; 3) collaboration and support for regional workshops with other GAP offices in the Asia region and stakeholders such as WHO on surveillance; 4) coordinating evaluation teams to assess the impact of programs and deliver the most effective interventions; 5) arranging for regional technical assistance laboratory bench training and hands-on learning at reduced costs.

OHSS funding will support CDC-SMDP technical assistance to Hanoi School of Public Health (HSPH) and Pasteur Institute (PI) to become in-country technical assistance (TA) providers on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework and tools, including pre- and post- training assessment, impact evaluation.

The goal of the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) is to develop a self-sustaining institutionalized capacity to train preventive medicine staff in field epidemiology in Vietnam. The training will be integrated with Vietnam’s overall efforts to strengthen capacity for minimizing the risks and impacts of communicable diseases.

CDC-Thailand provides in-service, hands-on learning in the Thai public health labs, and TA visits to Vietnam labs. CDC-Thailand supports Vietnam with quality management systems; implementation of HIV EQA and IQC programs; CD4 and Viral Load EQA programs.

The PEPFAR Laboratory Program has identified ‘low cost’ technical assistance (TA) for Vietnam. CDC staff supporting the China program have extensive experience in PCR-based technologies and viral load testing.

Mechanism Target Information

Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.

This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
