The Sustainable Financing Options Project for HIV and AIDS Prevention and Control for the period 2013-2020 has identified funding HIV and AIDS services through social health insurance (SHI) as one of the key strategies to ensure long term sustainability of HIV and AIDS treatment services in the context of declining international support for HIV and AIDS treatment in Vietnam. This report provides financial forecasts on the amounts of funding needed from SHI and other sources for HIV and AIDS treatment. It provides strong evidence to help Vietnam Social Security (VSS) prepare the financial resources needed for SHI to reimburse HIV and AIDS treatment. It also provides estimates of the resources needed from other sources for HIV and AIDS treatment in order to help the Government plan and prepare the resources for these items.
