HIV Campaign – Consultant

APW to develop a package of insight and evidence-based communication materials aimed at motivating key populations and people living with HIV to improve uptake of HIV/AIDS services

1. Background

The government of Viet Nam aims to end AIDS epidemic by 2030 and to achieve this goal, Viet Nam must diagnose 95% of all HIV-positive individuals, provide antiretroviral therapy (ART) for 95% of those diagnosed and achieve viral suppression for 95% of those treated by 2030. As of 2021, Viet Nam has achieved 89-79-96 and there are remaining gaps need to be filled. However, the last miles are more challenging to reach and thus, creative and attracting communication materials are required to increase demand for testing and treatment as well as treatment adherence.

The of communication material on HIV testing and PrEP will aim at men having sex with men (MSM, ages 16-34) while communications on hepatitis C will focus on people who inject drugs. Communication on ART including treatment as prevention (or undetectable = untransmittable) will focus on people living with HIV. There will be three (3) sets, each set addressing the specified key behaviour for an identified target audience as identified below:

Each set will have the following:

  • three (3) microvideos (15 to 30s), for a total of 12 videos for the entire package
  • static and gif-based digital advertisements

The materials are intended to deliver the messages in a quick-but-compelling manner, based on insights derived from the available evidence. The materials are also intended to be disseminated through specific channels for the target audiences, through social media pages/groups, applications used within the community and through out-of-home digital advertising (e.g., places of congregation clinics). Whenever applicable, some of the materials may be aired for television broadcast as public service announcements.
