“Improving the quality of life for children living with HIV/AIDS in Da Nang” has been carried out since 2017. For the past 5 years, the project has helped to enhance awareness of children living with HIV/AIDS, children affected by HIV/AIDS under difficult circumstances, and HIV-infected adults under 25 years old by providing health care, suitable education and vocational training, and improving economic conditions for their families. Total disbursement for the program is over 1 billion VND.
Speaking at the conference, Mr. Le Thanh Chung expressed his sincere thanks for the effective support of VNHIP helping children to be more confident, enabling them to obtain their rights, and reducing the mental and economic burden for their families. At the same time, Mr. Chung wished that VNHIP would continue to support the project in the coming period.
