USAID Pathways for Participation Project:
Civil Society Organization HIV Service Delivery Grants

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Pathways for Participation: Strengthening the Civil Society Response to HIV in Vietnam (Pathways) project invites Vietnamese civil society organizations (CSOs) to submit proposals for grants to deliver HIV prevention, care, and support services for most-at-risk populations, including female and male sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender people, injecting drug users, and people living with HIV and their sexual partners.

RTI International, in partnership with CARE, has been funded by USAID to implement the Pathways project in Vietnam. This is a 5-year project that commenced in October 2011. The project will implement activities in nine provinces: Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Hanoi, Nghe An, Dien Bien, Lao Cai, Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho, and An Giang.

The aim of the Pathways project is to improve the sustainability of CSOs by developing organizational and technical capacity and governance systems, promote models that achieve measurable results, increase CSO participation in HIV and AIDS forums, and support and strengthen systems and platforms whereby CSOs can contribute as valued participants in the national HIV and AIDS response.
