Project Officer


The International Center (formerly known as Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation -VVAF) is a humanitarian organization that has addressed the consequences of war through advocacy and service programs in Vietnam for the last three decades. As a cofounder of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, IC-VVAF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997. Now working under The International Center, IC, focuses on disability support, landmine removal, and mental health programs. 

Under the financial support of United States Agency for International Development (USAID), IC has been implementing the Disability Support Project named “Moving without Limits” in three provinces of Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam and Binh Dinh from July 2015 until September 2022. This project aims to improve the accessibility of the people with mobility impairments in Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam, and Binh Dinh to quality and affordable assistive devices. 

Three specific objectives of the project include: (i) Improved availability of quality assistive technologies/ devices (AT/AD) for people with mobility impairments in Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam and Binh Dinh provinces; (ii) Improved capacity related to AT/AD for the health sector workforce at national and sub-national levels; and (iii) Improved advocacy for policies/regulations and information sharing related to AT/AD. 

In order to achieve the above mentioned objectives, a wide range of activities will be implemented in the three project provinces as well as at the central level.  AT/AD service provision is implemented following the full range of provision including need assessment and proper prescription, AD procurement, fitting, user training and follow-up, maintenance and repair in order to ensure that people with mobility disabilities receive appropriate and quality AD they need. The integration of health care for people with disabilities (PWDs), including AT/AD service delivery into the existing health care system, mobilizing the non-specialists at community level to recognize, assess, manage and follow-up of care for PWDs will be promoted in this project. 

Being aware of the big gap in human resource for rehabilitation services, especially for AT/AD related services for PWDs, taking into account the practical solution for filling the gap, the project will apply mixed approaches: (i) build capacity for both high skilled health professionals at national level for providing technical assistance towards complicated cases and support building capacity for lower level service providers when needed; and (ii) task shifting, defined as the delegation of tasks to existing or new cadres with either less training or narrowly tailored training in order to deliver a certain and basic rehabilitation/AT solutions.  Thus IC will support improving capacity of rehabilitation and AT workforces for both national and provincial levels, for both high and less skilled service providers.

Access to AD/AT provision services cannot be improved without appropriate and available policy and governance, IC will work closely with the line ministry (ies), other involved partners to support development of the AT/AD service delivery framework as a part of the National Rehabilitation Strategy 2021-2025 as well as advocacy to include more AT/AD covered by health insurance scheme. In addition to that, IC will also support to improve information sharing, awareness rising on AT/AD related issues.
