The project, sponsored by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) with official development assistance worth over $5.5 million, will run from 2017 to 2021 in Hanoi.
It is designed to enhance access to and the quality of sexual and reproductive health care and family planning services, including contraceptive methods for youngsters, particularly disadvantaged youth and single migrants.
It will also improve the accessibility and use of human papilliomavirus (HPV) vaccines as well as cervical cancer treatment.
In addition, the project will help the Ministry of Health build and monitor policies and programs tackling inequality in maternal healthcare in minority communities, gender violence and gender imbalance while strengthening medical response to emerging issues like climate change and natural disasters.
