Prepared by UNDP-SEAHIV in collaboration with National AIDS Bureau,
Sociology Institute, Social Development Research and Consultancy and
UNDP Hanoi, Viet Nam
In collaboration with
national AIDS authorities in countries of the Greater Mekong
Subregion (GMS), the UNDP South-East Asia HIV and Development
Project (UNDP-SEAHIV) has conducted mapping assessments of HIV
vulnerability as it relates to mobile populations of the GMS area.
This Viet Nam assessment is part of that process.
This publication affords the reader a wealth of qualitative
information on the movements and behaviours of those frequently
travel through Highway One and the people they interact along the
way by presenting a broad array of informant interviews which are
excerpted in the report.
The UNDP-SEAHIV would like to thank: the Northern provinces team and
its leader, Dr. Vu Tuan Huy; the Southern provinces team and its
leader, Mr. Do Van Binli: the National AIDS Bureau, with special
thanks to its director, Professor Chung A as well as to Dr. Nguyen
Duy Tung; UNDP Viet Nam Country Office, especially its HIV Focal
Point. Jean-Pierre Bardoul; and Mr. Jamie Uhrig, UNDP-SEAHIV
consultant. Their collaboration in undertaking this mapping
assessment has contributed to a better understanding of HIV
vulnerability along Highway One covering the northern, central and
southern regions of Viet Nam.
