Vietnam - second implementation of the INDEX- results

3 May 2016

The Stigma Index was first conducted by VNP+ in 2011. In 2014, VNP+ undertook a second round of the Stigma Index to analyse the stigma and discrimination currently faced by people living with HIV in Viet Nam, and to establish what positive and/or negative changes ,if any,have taken place in the last three years. 

The success of the Stigma Index survey in Viet Nam was a collective achievement. Special appreciation must go to the people living with HIV who served as data collectors in the five provinces where the study was conducted: Can Tho, Dien Bien, Ha Noi, Hai Phong and Ho Chi  Minh City. We would also like to thank the Ministry of Health’s Viet Nam Administration of HIV/AIDS Control and the Provincial AIDS Centres in the five provinces for their support and collaboration. Our gratitude also goes to the experts from government, academia, international organizations and local organizations who provided input during the Stigma Index process.
