  1. Background

Healthy Markets aims to grow a viable commercial market for HIV-related goods and services capable of meeting the needs of populations facing the greatest risks. The project is expected to leverage private-sector solutions, expertise, interests, and assets to identify market opportunities and catalyze market responses to the HIV epidemic. The project also supports a phased transition from an environment where condoms and other related HIV prevention goods and services are predominantly subsidized, to one where non-subsidized commodities, services and distribution channels are the norm.

Specific objectives of the project include:

  • Objective 1: to increase private sector and local investment in the market for condoms and other HIV-related goods and services;
  • Objective 2: to increase demand for condoms and other HIV-related goods and services among key populations facing the greatest HIV risks; and,
  • Objective 3: to increase private sector supply of condoms and other HIV-related goods and services among key populations facing the greatest HIV risks.

One main focus of the HM project is to increase the access to HIV prevention services, including testing and Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) among key populations and expand new innovations. To achieve these objectives, Healthy Markets (HM) have been: (i) working with local condom, lubricant and low-dead space syringes manufacturers and distributors to promote sale of local brands; (ii) supporting community-based organizations to deliver HIV testing servces to key populations; (iii) collaborating with the Vietnam Authority of AIDS Control, Provincial Health Department and Provincial Medicine Center, public and private health clinics to provide HIV and STIs testing, PrEP, PEP and ART services at their facilities in Hanoi. HM is seeking for local technical support in order to ensure the quality of weekly and monthly program reports of these activities.
