About Social Impact

Social Impact (SI) is a global development management consulting firm which provides monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. In Vietnam, SI is implementing the USAID Learns program to support USAID staff and partners to implement more efficient, effective, and transparent programs.

Position Background:

Disability Project's goal is to further improve the availability, accessibility, quality, and sustainability of services for persons with disabilities (rehabilitation, social services, etc.) and promote persons with disabilities' social participation. Private sector partners are key stakeholders, together with GVN, CSOs/NGOs, and USAID wants to improve the PSE to achieve this goal.

The United Nation’s World Health Organization (WHO)'s rehabilitation updates showed that the need for rehabilitation is high, however the demand for services is low due to low awareness of the services/needs/demand, limited-service availability, (especially in remote areas and low resource settings), the service price is not affordable. This affects supply too.


USAID/Vietnam intends to conduct an assessment on Disability Private Sector Landscape Analysis (PSLA). This review will aim to understand the state of private sector engagement in providing services to person with disabilities by answering the following (but not limited to) questions with reference to this discussion note on How to Conduct a PSLA:

  • What is the general state of the private sector in Vietnam in engaging in providing services to persons with disabilities? What are the challenges and barriers to their engagement and investments?
  • What are the Vietnamese private sector's perspectives on engaging in disabilities-related services?
  • Based on what we learn, what are potential strategies to engage the private sector in disabilities-related services?
