Đam Viet Cuong, Vu Minh Hanh and colleagues

 

Objectives

To assess changes in awareness and advisory roles in implementation of the reproductive healthcare and HIV/AIDS control among officers of the Commission for Science and Education (CCSE) at all levels after a number of intervention measures were introduced; To recommend solutions for application of intervention measures nationwide.

 

Methods

This is a descriptive and cross-sectional study with control and intervention groups. It compared the situation of the intervention group to the control group pre and post intervention. The study was implemented in the provinces of Hai Phong and Dong Nai.

Results

There were changes in awareness of HIV/AIDS among staff at different levels in the two intervention districts of Long Thanh and Thuy Nguyen as compared to before intervention and to the two control districts of Trang Bom and An Duong. Participatory role and advisory skills of the education/science staff were improved in the intervention districts. However, effectiveness of the intervention was still limited due to both contents and forms of the intervention. Results of the intervention also depended o­n other HIV/AIDS prevention and control projects concurrently implemented in the same locations.

 

Conclusion

After 2 years of implementing the interventions within project "Improving awareness and advisory capacity of education/sciences staff at different levels in reproductive healthcare (RH) and HIV/AIDS prevention and control", in the intervention districts, there was evidence of increase in HIV/AIDS awareness among the education/sciences staff as well as leaders of the Party’s Steering Committees, People’s Committees. There was also some changes in RH but not that significant as compared to the changes in HIV/AIDS awareness. Participation as well as advisory capability of the education/sciences staff in RH and HIV/AIDS prevention and control was greatly improved in the intervention districts in comparison to before intervention and to the control districts. However, effectiveness of the interventions was still limited because of many factors in both contents and forms of the interventions. In addition, the project’s effectiveness also to a large extent depended o­n other concurrently implemented HIV/AIDS prevention and control projects, causing difficulties in evaluation of this project’s effectiveness.
