Call for Expressions of Interest and Proposal

1. Background

Ho Chi Minh city (HCMC) is the biggest city in Viet Nam with more than 10 million people. The city is not yet met the need for NCD management of people although it has a lot of hospitals and clinics. These health facilities are usually overwhelmed with patients. However, few patients visit Commune Health Stations (CHSs). To solve the overload of hospitals and clinics as well as reduce NCD treatment gap, probably more than 50%, the city needs to strengthen CHSs. This is a challenging task because currently people don’t trust the CHSs and the capacity of these health facilities in term of human resource and equipment is limited.

The Department of Health (DOH) of HCMC requested support from the WHO for strengthening Primary Care focusing on NCD management. The Organization had two missions to HCMC including the one led by the acting WR in late 2022. WHO team provided recommendations on public health approach for NCD, approaches for strengthening PHC and policy interventions on human/financial resources and multi-sectoral collaboration which are aligned with the regional action framework for NDC in WPRO region. Furthermore, the WHO committed to support HCMC to strengthen Primary Care starting with NCD management at DHCs and CHSs. For this task, the WHO supported the DOH with a planning meeting and some basic training courses for Health Care Workers (HCWs) on management of hypertension and diabetes- the most common NCDs.

As results of the planning meeting, service of advanced counselling on diet and physical activity for diabetic and hypertensive patients should be emphasized and made available at DHCs and CHSs. To make this happen, the WHO needs to recruit a consultant.
