PIVI Work with Vietnam
Vietnam began receiving PIVI support in 2016. With PIVI support, the General Department of Preventive Medicine (GDPM) within the Ministry of Health and the Vietnam office of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a vaccine acceptability survey among healthcare workers in July 2017. Vietnam recently conducted Flu Working Group Training through the National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NITAG) and a Knowledge, Attitudes, and Perceptions (KAP) Questionnaire with technical support from PIVI.
In early 2017, the Ministry of Health of Vietnam, with financial and technical assistance from PIVI and the CDC, vaccinated nearly 11,000 health care workers with season flu vaccine in 29 health care facilities across the country. Read more about this vaccination program here.
