Vietnam II

Initiative to Strengthen the Nursing Training Program

Local Partner Organization
The Ministry of Health, Vietnam

Program Overview
Currently, there is a severe human resource shortage in Vietnam, particularly in the field of nursing, which affects the extent to which HIV/AIDS services can be provided in the country.

ICEHA is collaborating with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health in a new initiative which will address the effects of the nursing shortage. This initiative will augment the faculty at nursing schools within Vietnam. Clinical instructor nurses will be recruited to help train additional nurses in Vietnam by filling in teaching positions for which there is no faculty in Vietnam. Teaching will include a combination of didactic and clinical mentoring training on HIV/AIDS.


  • ICEHA's first clinical mentor volunteers will arrive at nursing schools in Vietnam beginning in 2008.

Clinical Mentor Volunteers Needed

  • The minimum time commitment is 6 weeks; expenses are paid.
