1. Background:This consultancy is a part of the project “Tackling Modern Slavery" from Viet Nam: An interagency programme for behaviour change, access to justice and reintegration support” funded by the United Kingdom’s Home Office. This project tackles modern slavery from Viet Nam through harnessing the capacities of IOM, World Vision and British Council to implement a coordinated series of interventions that specifically align with existing work in Viet Nam, and United Kingdom Official Development Assistance requirements. On the basis of IOM research, the project targets five key target provinces: Nghe An (Yen Thanh; Dien Chau districts); Hai Phong city (Hai Phong city; Thuy Nguyen district); Quang Binh: (Đong Hoi city; Bo Trach districts); Ha Tinh (Can Loc; Nghi Xuan districts); and Quang Ninh (Ha Long city). Under the prevention component, the project aims to prevent vulnerable populations from becoming victims by reducing vulnerability to modern slavery through a behaviour change communication (BCC) campaign entitled “Think Before You Go” which consists of digital and live events targeting specific vulnerable groups at risks of trafficking. While the campaign has been well-received by the target groups as well as implementing partners and achieved certain success, the project is looking to further enhance and add value to ongoing activities in order to augment gained knowledge, changed attitudes and practices regarding safe migration in the changing context of COVID-19.
