HO CHI MINH CITY, August 21, 2015 - The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today launched a Healthy Markets Innovation Fund – an initiative to identify and invest in innovative social enterprise ideas for HIV-related commodities and services in Vietnam.

The Innovation Fund is aimed at increasing the demand and supply of HIV goods and services. Implemented through USAID’s Healthy Markets project, the competition is open to teams from social enterprises, nonprofit organizations and businesses in Vietnam. Winners will be selected by a panel of HIV and social impact experts, and will receive financial and in-kind support, such as business mentoring and technical assistance for implementation.
“In the coming years, as Vietnam looks for novel ways of sustaining the HIV response, it will need to reach out to new partners and find new methods of providing goods and services,” said U.S. Consul General Rena Bitter. “The Healthy Markets Innovation Fund is a new exciting opportunity to engage and support private sector and community entrepreneurs with enterprising ideas that can contribute to the HIV response.”

Days ago the United Nations agreed on a Post-2015 Development Agenda with 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). Two weeks earlier, agreement was reached on the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for financing those inspiring and very ambitious goals. In many ways, Vietnam has become a model for the MDGs and it did so in collaboration with important development partners, including the US, and with the support of many international NGOs, including many based in the US. Today we should celebrate how that came to be, so that we can do even better on our new shared agenda.
