USAID/Vietnam provides comprehensive support to the NTP to improve Vietnam’s TB response through a set of TB-focused activities including:
Infectious Disease Detection and Surveillance (IDDS): an activity to support the strengthening of TB detection networks, and to improve the quality of TB surveillance systems.
Tuberculosis Implementation Framework Agreement (TIFA): TIFA provides resources to Vietnam NTP to empower NTP in development and implementation of its National Action Plan to end TB, increase political commitment, and improve in-service training and supervision for the NTP network.
Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR): STAR provides seconded technical advisors to key positions within the NTP to address bottlenecks, build capacity within the GVN health systems, and maximize the impact of interventions to improve TB services.
Tuberculosis Local Organizations Network (LON): LON focuses on locally generated solutions to address the diagnosis, treatment and prevention needs of TB patients through community and private sector engagement.

Strengthened TB service delivery platform: In Vietnam, the National TB program leads the country’s response to the epidemic, and provides all TB prevention, diagnosis, and treatment activities. The quality of the NTP system has a direct impact on the provision of patient-centered TB services. This activity, in collaboration with other USAID and non-USAID partners, especially WHO, GFATM, and the World Bank, will support the GVN to strengthen the NTP service delivery system.
Improved service accessibility: Evidence from the last TB prevalence survey (TBPS) revealed that the TB and MDR-TB burden is much higher than previously estimated, and that TB prevalence is much higher among men and elderly individuals.
Advance local ownership of TB response: GVN has maintained a National Targeted Program funding for the TB response for the last 20 years. The majority of the annual service delivery needs for DS-TB have been covered by NTP funds.
Estimated Total Program Funding: $15,000,000
Award Ceiling: $15,000,000
