The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project is working with the Government of Vietnam and community partners to accelerate HIV epidemic control. This includes helping increase knowledge of and access to HIV services, including PrEP (a pill that prevents HIV infection), HIV testing, and HIV treatment. To help achieve these aims, EpiC plans to continue to manage a robust and diverse social media strategy that helps promote and link people to services, especially men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender people (TG); and people who formerly or currently inject drugs (PWIDs) and their partners. Many of the individuals at the greatest risk of HIV acquisition and with the lowest knowledge are young men (ages 15-25). During the next fiscal year (October 2021 to September 2022), EpiC is seeking a national individual consultant or firm to help manage its social media and Google PPC promotional activities, which are expected to focus on the following areas:

  1. HIV self-testing, available for home delivery
  2. HIV testing, available from community health workers and at public health facilities
  3. Daily pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV infection
  4. Event-driven PrEP, a newly available option for PrEP that does not require daily pills, but instead involves taking PrEP specifically around times of increased HIV acquisition risk
  5. The continuation and adapting of HIV services during COVID-19 waves

EpiC Vietnam works in six provinces: Dong Nai, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), Quang Ninh, Tay Ninh, and Tien Giang. The project runs an online reservation application called Suc Khoe Connect ( that connects clients from online advertisements to appointments and community outreach workers who are available to answer their questions. Suc Khoe Connect also includes a Knowledge Hub that provides easy to understand information about HIV and available services.
